     Hello! Thank you for visiting my page! 

    I am currently on my 4th year of teaching PreK in the Hazleton Area School District. I have my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education and I am certified in English as a Second Language (ESL). I will soon have my Masters in ESL as well.  While in college, I have also studied abroad in Africa and Italy to enrich my education!

    My husband and I have two boys, Maxton (age 4)  and Rocco (age 1) , and two rescue dogs, Bella and Skye. While spending time with my family and teaching are my two favorite things to do, I also enjoy running and being outside! 

    Now that you know a little more about me, I look forward to learning more about you!


    I hope you are all doing well during this difficult time. I miss seeing you every day! If you'd like to practice some skills at home, please use this link for some activities:
