Before joining MMS, I taught at Highgate Elementary School for over 15 years. While at Highgate, I worked at the fifth and sixth grades. Prior to starting at Highgate Elementary, I worked as a substitute teacher in Grand Isle Supervisory Union and as a paraprofessional at Hyannis East Elementary School. I completed my undergraduate work at Regis College in Weston, Massachusetts, where I majored in Psychology and Elementary Education. I completed a wide variety of field experiences in the schools in nearby Waltham. I completed my graduate work at St. Michael’s College, receiving a Master of Education with a concentration in School Leadership. I have also attended the Middle Grades Summer Institute multiple times.
