Ever since I was little, I have always wanted to be a teacher. I always looked up to Ms. Jackie Cherry, my 3rd and 5th grade teacher, because she inspired me to do my best. Today, I am a teacher and I work hard to create opportunities for my students. My classroom is a safe space to learn and explore without fear of getting something wrong. Together my class and I create a community of learners always growing and supporting each other.

This is my first year at Pelham Ridge and I am super excited. I have nine years of teaching experience. Working with children, on a daily basis, is both a passion and a privilege. I am thrilled to be part of such an amazing community and doing a job I love. In my spare time you can usually catch me on a lacrosse field or a track meet. I have three daughters Gracie (20), Isabella (17), and Lucy Mac (14). I love to read (my favorite book is the BFG by Roald Dahl). I am a huge Red Sox fan and I love the Alabama Crimson Tide.
