Bio

I grew up in New Hampshire (Lake Winnipesaukee) and moved to Connecticut to attend college.  I graduated from Connecticut College with a bachelors degree in psychology, and then went to Lesley University in Cambridge, MA to earn a masters degree in teaching. I taught for 8 years in Westport, CT, and have now been teaching at John B. Sliney for 8 years. (I also took 8 years off in between to raise my 3 children!)

In my spare time I enjoy reading, gardening and staying active with my husband and 3 children.
