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. My own children are 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. I started here in 2017 and have enjoyed every minute of my time here. I enjoy the staff and students that I have the opportunity to work with everyday.

Hobbies and Interests

  • Enjoying watching my grown children experience their own adult lives.
  • Going to movies and THE BEACH!
  • Being involved in the YMCA.
  • Outside walking, exercising, walking my dog, drive my cats crazy with the laser pointer.
