Years Teaching:

Prior to teaching at Cherry Hill, I spent 4 years in private education primarily teaching students in kindergarten through fifth grade. During this time, I also assisted in developing and implementing before/after-school and summer care programs for students ages 2-12 years old. I came to the New Lenox School District in 2016 as a paraprofessional in the Excel Program. This is my first year teaching at Cherry Hill.
