Why I am committed to Amphi

  • I am an Amphi product; Donaldson, Cross, and CDO. It just feels right to be here.

Defining Moment in my Education

  • I had four amazing HS teachers who had a profound impact on my life. Not only did they teach me about chemistry, grammar, sports and literature, but also how to build my self-confidence, build relationships and how to manage multiple tasks. I want to be that person.

Why I Teach at IRHS

  • I have spent 24 years working at the Middle School level. With my own children now older, I felt it was time to take on a new challenge and thought IRHS would be a welcoming, exciting place to do that.

Hobbies and Interests

  • Watching my children in their sports activities.
  • Going to movies and THE BEACH!
  • Being involved in the YMCA.
  • Walking, exercising, taking my dog outside.
