    Welcome to a new school year! I am very excited to embark on this journey of learning together with you.  Each day we will remind ourselves why we are here at learn and grow individually and as a team of learners. As your teacher, it is my responsibility to support you in any way that I can to ensure that you have a productive and rewarding school year.

    Here is a little bit about myself :
    I am a Graduate of West Seneca West Senior High School, Go Indians! I received my Bachelor's Degree at Gannon University in Erie, PA and my Master's Degree at Canisius College in Buffalo, NY. I have been teaching for 18 years, 2 years as a private school PreK teacher and for 16 years as a public school special education teacher and I have loved every minute of it.

    I am married and have 2 children who happen to be West Wildcats!  When I am not in the school building, I spend my time as a Girl Scout Troop Leader, PTA parent and a dancing school mom. I am excited to be part of the West Elementary School Family.

    My hobbies include reading, music and theater.  

    My favorite website is 

    My favorite sports teams are the Bills, the Sabres and the Mets...yes I understand that this is the trifecta for heartbreak...but I am a strong woman! My love for all things Disney helps me to remain the "Happiest Teacher On Earth".
