I am a teacher because I LOVE students and am passionate about helping them grow and succeed. Education is a key to that success, which is why I have a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Delaware, a master's degree in secondary education from the University of Phoenix, and numerous professional development hours in education. My teaching certification is in secondary English, grades 7-12, and I have taught grades 9-12 including dual enrollment Freshman Composition. I believe Brewer High School is the best school in the universe! I live in the district and love seeing my students when I go shopping or walk my dog. My mom and stepdad live four miles from my house, and we're very close. The loves of my life are my five grown children. A boxer and Irish Wolfhound keep me busy at home.
