This is my 17th year at Charter Oak. Prior to teaching, I spent 25 years in the crazy world of advertising. I loved my job, but when my sons went off to college, I realized that I had a chance to start over and fulfill my passion to work with children. I taught fourth grade for many years, and then became the International Baccalaureate (IB) Coordinator at Charter Oak. I believe strongly in the IB philosophy, and enjoyed working with our staff to spread the word to our families and community; and to help our school through the IB reauthorization process. Now, I am excited to be back in the classroom.
My husband and I raised our two sons in West Hartford, where we still reside. When I'm not teaching, I love to hang out with family & friends, travel, read, and listen to music. I am happiest when I am anywhere near the water.
