I currently teach 4th grade at Ellsworth Elementary Middle School. This is my thirteenth year in education. Twelve of those rewarding years have been in Ellsworth. I have taught  4th,  5th,  6th, 7th, and 8th grade.  I have thoroughly enjoyed each grade level.  

In addition to my educational career, I have coached the Ellsworth Elementary Middle School Softball teams.  Prior to my career, I was a program director for a recreation department running a variety of athletic programs as well as extra curricula activities. I had the wonderful opportunity to join the AmeriCorp and serve as Communities for Children VISTA. I was able to serve in Maine and develop children programs and youth councils.

From my educational standpoint, I hold a B.S. degree in Elementary Education. I obtained my degree from the University of Maine In 2003. I am highly qualified in general Elementary Education and Social Studies. I am currently furthering my education at the University of Maine pursuing a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership.
