As a little girl I always wanted to be a teacher. I used to frequently play school in my basement with my stuffed animals. In pursuit of this dream, I attend Rowan University. I graduated in 2004 with my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education & Sociology and obtained my New Jersey Teaching Certificate. My career in the Camden Diocese began in December of 2005 at St. Joseph’s Regional Elementary in Hammonton, NJ. In my 12-year career at St. Joe’s I taught 4th grade for 8 years, while studying to become a certified Middle School Math Teacher, and then taught 6th-8th grade Math for 4 years. I took a year off to enter the corporate world, but realized I missed teaching way too much. It is truly my passion. So, that brought me right back to the Camden Diocese at John Paul II Regional Elementary in Stratford, NJ. I again taught 4th grade, and then last year was a 2nd grade teacher. To me teaching is everything, I love watching the students grow and learn every single day. The students are not the only ones that do the learning, I do too! In addition to learning at school, I love to grow and have fun outside of the classroom. When I am not traveling around the world with my husband, exploring new places, and creating amazing memories, I am quite the homebody. I love spending time with family, friends, and my 3 adorable cats. I am also super dedicated to my health and fitness, and always make time for a daily gym session. Whether I am teaching, traveling, working out, or spending time relaxing, I will always be motivated to be the best version of myself.
