Welcome to Physical Education! A few years ago I moved to Massachusetts with my family from New York State. This is my 10th year teaching PE (my 4th at BES)! I earned my Bachelor's degree in Physical Education at SUNY Brockport in 2008 and my Master's in Health Education in 2010. I taught K-8 PE in East Moriches, NY from 2010-2013 and K-2 PE in Rocky Point, NY from 2013-2016. I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful district and love providing my students with a broad curriculum including sport skills, fitness activities, cooperative activities, and more!
I grew up in upstate NY with my parents and two brothers. Although I was never a star athlete, I was always drawn to movement, fitness, and sports and decided to merge those interests with my passion for teaching. After teaching on Long Island for 6 years, my husband, son, and I moved to Massachusetts. Last year we welcomed our second son, completing our family. We enjoy outdoor activities like hiking with our dog Riley, biking, and playing at parks and playgrounds. We also love just snuggling up with a good book. It has been very exciting exploring all that Massachusetts has to offer!
I hope each year of PE with me is filled with positive learning experiences that help instill a passion for moving in each of my students so that they are better prepared to live long, healthy, happy lives.
