About the Teacher

While this is my first year in the Perth Amboy School district, the 2023-2024 school year will be my third year of teaching. Before joining the Freshman Academy, I taught in Elizabeth, NJ for two years. I attended Muhlenberg College and completed my student teaching in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Helping students to unlock their potential through language arts is something that I love to do!
