I have been teaching for over 19 years. Cultivating my students and witnessing them become their best possible selves has been my greatest pleasure in teaching. I enjoy doing the following things when I am not teaching: reading, writing, researching on human development, and spending time with family and friends.

During this COVID-19 pandemic, I decided to garden again. Spending time preparing my soil for transplants and seeds made me think about students in the Chester Community. We have great minds and wonderful potential to cultivate. I look forward to being able to enhance the lives to young people, our future, and build the best possible community in the place that gave me my start in life.
