I have taught many grade levels before coming to Canterbury in 2021, but absolutely love teaching third graders. I enjoy watching children in this age group grow and blossom academically, socially, and emotionally. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, exercising, going to the beach, and doing just about anything outdoors. I love the Canterbury community and feel fortunate to have the opportunity to work with the students in this town.

This is my third year at CES, following five years at DHBMS. Before that, I worked at a private school for students with special needs. In my free time, I enjoy reading, hiking, and traveling.
The 2022-2023 school year marks my 7th year teaching in Canterbury, my 17th year in 4th grade, and my 24th year overall. My three kids, husband and I enjoy hiking, going to the beach, and working on puzzles.
I’ve been teaching fourth grade at CES for 5 years and I love it! This is my 17th year of teaching. Before becoming a teacher, I performed professionally onstage in musicals and plays. I’ve lived in Boston and New York City. I still perform now for fun. Recently I started teaching acting classes for CES and BMS students after school and in the summer!
