I am a fourth grade teacher at South Buffalo Elementary. I have been fortunate to be a member of the Freeport Area School District’s faculty since 1991. I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Elementary Education and Master’s degree in Elementary School Counseling from Indiana University of PA.

I have a love for reading and am grateful to share this passion with the fourth graders as their English Language Arts teacher!
