Degrees and Certifications:
I live in Duxbury with my husband, 3 children (Bryn, 10, Shae, 11 and Cole 12) and our dog Maui. I graduated from Merrimack College in 1998 with a minor in elementary education, but upon graduation I decided to enter the private sector and worked at a venture capital firm for more than 10 years. I left to become a stay-at-home mom, which I was for more than 10 years. As my children started going to school at Chandler and Alden I found myself volunteering quite a bit in the schools and several of the teachers suggested I pursue a second career as a teacher. I went for it, receiving my Masters in Elementary Education from Curry College and subsequently doing my pre-practicum and practicum in a 1st grade class at Chandler and a 3rd grade class at Alden. Last year I served as the permanent in-house substitute at Alden and fell in love with the students, administration and staff. I am excited to have my own classroom this year and watching my amazing students learn and grow every day.
