I am so excited to introduce myself. I am currently the Instructional Coach at Newville Elementary. 

Before working at Newville Elementary, I taught 6th grade at Big Spring Middle School for eight years. My educational experiences also include working as a reading consultant for the CAIU for 2 years and as a 5th and 6th-grade teacher at West Perry School District for 8 years.  I have a passion for students and motivating them to learn. 

My role at Newville as an instructional coach is to work with teachers in the building to use best practices to make our students and teachers the most successful they can be. I also assist Mr. Wonders to provide professional development for teachers on new and innovative practices to help guide our curriculum and instructional practices. Finally, I try to motivate and guide our school-wide reading challenge!

I look forward to working with teachers, students and parents to make this the best year it can be.
