    I graduated from Temple University with a Bachelor of Science degree and certification in early childhood and elementary education and a Master of Education degree with a concentration in elementary mathematics education. I also hold certifications as an Elementary and Early Childhood Supervisor, Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction K-12, and Reading Specialist K-12.
    I have been at UMASD for 21 years. I taught 8th grade reading at the middle school and was the first IST teacher in the district (at Caley and Bridgeport schools). I have also served as a Subject Area Leader for elementary math, science and social studies as well as on various district-wide and school committees including technology, language arts, IST, and Faculty Advisory. Two highlights of my tenure at UMASD have been working on Caley's National Blue Ribbon Schools application, which we were awarded ranking number 1 in Pennsylvania, and being nominated for and inducted into the UMASD Wall of Fame.

    Outside of the district, I have served on the Keystone Technology Integrators Advisory Committee and on the PDE Mathematics and Reading Assessment Advisory Committees for 3rd through 5th grade since 1998. I also served on the Governor's Institutes for Middle School and High School Content Area Literacy steering committees and was a facilitator at the Middle School Institute. I also teach at Widener and St. Joseph's Universities. I am proud to say that I was nominated as the Outstanding University College Faculty Member at Widener in 2004 and 2006.
    As much as I love teaching reading and math, I caught the "technology bug" when I booted up my first Apple IIe in 1985! Each year I see my students’ academic skills, motivation to learn, and ability to share and collaborate with their classmates increase as I infuse more technology into my teaching such as podcasting, streaming video and the Smart Board to bring the ideas in the books we are reading to life. A UMAEF grant provided Palm handheld computers and keyboards which gave my students daily access to a tool that made writing a pleasure rather than a chore.
