I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. I attended Allegheny College and received a Bachelor of Arts in History. I received my Masters in Education from Boston College, and did gifted course work at Maryville University. I am certified to teach middle and high school Social Studies as well as Gifted Education K-12. I began teaching in the St. Louis Public Schools in 2002 and have been at McKinley since 2006.
Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, especially my husband and three daughters (ages 8, 5, and 20 months).
