About Me
  • Background:
I have been teaching in the Salem Public Schools since September of 2001. I started as the Technology Integration Specialist at the Collins Middle School and spent 3 years in that position. Although I enjoyed my position tremendously, I missed the rewards of teaching in my own classroom and interacting with students on a regular basis. Since 2004 I've had the honor of teaching at the Nathaniel Bowditch School.
