As the science teacher on the Delta Team, I love using hands-on activities to engage all learners. In my free time, I enjoy snowboarding, hiking, and playing the bagpipes! I live in Waterville with my husband, two dogs, and daughter Maeve.

As the Delta Team's math teacher, I love working with students to explore mathematical concepts and make connections with the patterns we see in our everyday life. Outside of the classroom, I love running, hiking, camping and spending time with my family and friends.  I am usually training for my next race or planning my next backpacking or canoeing trip.

By exploring the world around us and learning through stories, my main goal is for students to become life-long readers and writers. I teach Humanities on Delta, and we focus on becoming stronger, more articulate, and more expressive communicators by exploring various themes. Throughout the year, we develop our reading, writing, listening, speaking, and social skills as we dive into world geography and literature set in the regions we are discovering. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy being outdoors, practicing my fiddle, trying to teach my cat tricks, and exploring new places with my family.

As the Special Educator for the Delta team, I look forward to helping students navigate toward success using their strengths, mediating their weaknesses and striving to produce their best finished work.  I will also be co-teaching a language arts class and a math class with the team. My teaching started at a school for students with learning dissabilities before transitioning to Essex, but it has also included teaching in Zurich, Switzerland for two years.  The diversity of teaching experiences has led to an understanding of how we all truly learn differently.

Personally, I enjoy biking, swimming and skiing in the winter.  Traveling, exploring and adventure would also describe my world. I am lucky to enjoy two older sons visiting often.
