Degrees and Certifications:
Hello all! I am a 9th grade American Cultures and 8th grade Civics and Geography teacher here at Muhlenberg Junior High School. This is my 13th year teaching with a degree in Citizenship Education which I attained from Kutztown University in 2008 and a masters degree from Wilkes University in Classroom Technology in 2016. I spend my summers coaching little league baseball and enjoying the outdoors with my children. I am also an alumni of Muhlenberg High School, graduating in 2004.
I am a true history nerd. I have travelled to Europe to study the holocaust, made many trips to Revolutionary, 1812 and Civil War battlefields and many other historic sites in the region. I do my best to keep up with current events and try my best to make connections with my students between the past and present. My goal is to teach my students the early history of America while reinforcing essential skills they all will need in their futures. When we discuss current events I strive to present all information regarding the issue. My aim is to teach my students how to think, not what to think!
