3 years in Philadelphia School District in a neighborhood K-8 school
3 years in Neshaminy School District, elementary level
5 years in Downingtown Area School District, elementary level
I was born & raised in Downingtown, PA, and attended Pickering Valley (1993-1998), Lionville Middle School (1998-2001), the Ninth Grade Center (2001-2002) and Downingtown East High School (2002-2005). During my time in high school, I became a certified Emergency Medical Technician and considered going into the medical profession, but decided music & teaching were my passions. I have been playing piano for about 20 years, and I recently started learning the guitar as well. I married my college sweetheart 8 years ago (who is also a teacher in the district), and we currently live in Norristown, PA. We have two dogs named Nacho & Sheldon who love to play together. We also had our first child on February 6, 2019, a baby girl named Parker! I enjoy watching the Flyers and Phillies, playing piano, reading mysteries and watching sitcoms.
