A little bit about me...Growing up, my favorite game to play was "'teacher" and my stuffed animal, Rosie, was my best student. After graduating high school, I moved down South to New Orleans and attended Tulane University and received my B.A. in History. During my senior year, Hurricane Katrina hit and once we were allowed back, I spent time working within the community as part of my studies. After college, I spent a few years as a fabric buyer in New York City but quickly realized that teaching was a better fit for me. I moved to the Philadelphia area with my husband, Chris, and completed my Masters Degree at Cabrini College. While completing my degree, I worked as a paraprofessional at Ithan and at Collegium Charter School. I then taught at The Pathway School, a nearby approved private school that specifically serves students with disablities. This is my second year as a learning support teacher at Ithan and I am so lucky to be a part of this wonderful community! When I am not working with your children, I am chasing my son, Gannon around, who is in turn chasing my dog, Shea, who is in turn looking for my husband, Chris to give her a treat. The daily chases occur at our home in Oreland.
