I look forward to getting to know you throughout the school year!  Here is a little bit about me...
    I love teaching!!!  The students, their families and the staff here make coming to work something I look forward to each and every day!  Wilson is truly my home away from home, and you will see that we will become a family in class.   
     Although this is my 12th year at Wilson, I have been in education for 24  years. I received my Masters Degree in Reading from Montclair State University.   I have previously taught 2nd and 5th grade.   I also supervised student teachers during their student teaching field experience at Centenary College and Montclair State University.
    I have two beautiful daughters.  Alyssa is my  19 year old sophmore at Kean University.  Brielle is 15, she is a sophmore at Hackettstown High School. I also have two amazing step children. Matthew is 15 and also a sophmore. He plays football for Hackettstown High School.  Kaelyn is 13, she is in 7th grade.   Baxter is our energetic and friendly dog.  
    Although teaching and being a mom keep me pretty busy, I have other intersts as well. My husband and I love to go on hikes, we live near many trails!  I also love reading.  Some of my favorite genres are realistic fiction, biographies and historical fiction.  Exercising is another passion of mine. I began doing Yoga a few years ago, and I really enjoy it! We can try some together!  I also love music, although my kids do not love it when I sing along to the radio!  I love all kinds of music but especially country! Thomas Rhett is my favorite singer right now. 
    I can not wait to get to know more about each of you this year!
