After graduating from Boston University with an undergraduate degree in English education and a Master's in reading education, I began my teaching career at Breed Junior High School in Lynn, MA, in 1993. Twenty plus years later I'm still at Breed; it's a middle school now, and I've served here in many capacities.
Each and every day I strive to live up to our school's motto and "bring out the best
I began my first year in the reading department as a Title One reading teacher, I next taught grade eight English language arts for eight years, and then transitioned to work as both a reading teacher and librarian. While working here at Breed, I earned another Masters in education from Salem State University in Library Media Studies.
I have played many roles outside of the classroom; I've coached, been cluster leader, advised various club, run the school store, and edited the yearbook.
