I'm proud to be a part of Keene Central School as your Fourth Grade Teacher!  Thank you for the warm welcome you have all extended throughout my first two years here at KCS.

I originally hail from Wales Center, located in Western New York.  I earned my Bachelor's of Science and Elementary Certification at Buffalo State College.  Later, I pursued a Master's Degree in Special Education at St. Bonaventure University.  My career in education began in Hamburg, N.Y. where I taught fourth grade.  Years later the Rocky Mountains lured me to Colorado where I taught grades two, three and five.  In 2009 I accepted a position supporting the Teacher Learning Center at the Teton Science Schools in Jackson, WY.  Living in the west created wonderful and lasting memories.  Ultimately, I was drawn back to  familiar territory.  In 2010 I followed my heart back to the New York landing closer to family and old friends.  I feel fortunate to be part of this close-knit community.
