I love teaching! I have taught in many capacities since 1990. I first worked at Perkins School for the Blind with students who were deaf and blind. While living in Cambridge, MA, I earned my Master of Education degree from Lesley University. This lead to a year of teaching seventh grade in Virginia. My husband and I missed New England, so we returned and I began teaching in Litchfield, New Hampshire. Since coming to Pembroke Hill School in 2000, I have had the pleasure of teaching in Special Education and grades 2, 3 and 4.
When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. My husband, daughters and I caught the travel bug and we have had memorable trips. Once we drove a retro-RV to the National Parks in the West where we met a bear. Everyone needs a good bear story. In 2016, after visiting our exchange student’s family in Germany, we stayed on a houseboat in an Amsterdam canal and got lost in Paris. In 2019, we took an intergenerational trip to Rome. There were 10 of us – aged 79 years to 14 months! Each time, we return from these travels with a better understanding of the world and an appreciation for home!
