Degrees and Certifications:
After graduating high school in Pittsburgh, PA, I attended college at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in Indiana, PA. I received my Bachelor's degree in Family and Consumer Sciences Education. Soon after graduation, I got married and my husband and I moved to Camp Hill, PA where I got my first teaching job. I taught Family and Consumer Sciences at Cumberland Valley High School in Mechanicsburg, PA for 15 years. I taught an array of different classes including Culinary Essentials 1, Culinary Essentials 2, Food Works, Global Cuisine, Child Development, Skills For Success, Clothing 1, Clothing 2, Clothing 3 and Clothing 4. During my time teaching in Pennsylvania, I went back to college and received my first Master's degree in 2006 from Wilkes University in Educational Development and Strategies. I then went back to Wilkes University and graduated with my second Masters degree in 2011 in Educational Leadership with a Principal's certification. I also just finished my course work for my CLAD (Crosscultural, Language, and Academic Development) credential through Brandman University.
In April 2017, my husband and I decided to move to California. After getting my teaching credentials switched over to California and finding a job at Toll, we moved here last August.
I am the proud mom of 3 daughters. I like to run, sew, color and doing anything crafty!
