Although I was born and raised in Connecticut, I consider myself a proud Jersey Girl! My teaching career at Frankford had me wearing many hats. As an RTI instructor, I have worked with individuals and small groups of students in the 5th through 8th grades. I taught 7th grade Writing as well as combined Reading and Writing blocks. I was thrilled to begin a new endeavor as the director of the Distinguished Scholars Program, and am so impressed with the students who chose to challenge themselves during their middle school experience. It is a truly rewarding to work with and get to know students who have a passion for learning.
