Welcome to Physical Education! I recently moved to Massachusetts with my family from New York State. Although this is my first year at Boylston Elementary, it is my seventh year teaching PE. 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 look forward to 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. We enjoy outdoor activities like hiking with our dog Riley, biking, and playing at parks and playgrounds. We also love just snuggling up with our cat, Lilly, and a good book. It has been very exciting exploring all that Massachusetts has to offer!
Although this year started off a little chaotic with no gymnasium and no PE teacher, I am excited to share that the gym is about to be finished! The students have made my first few weeks truly enjoyable and have shown incredible flexibility and willingness to try new things. I hope the remainder of the year 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.
