I am a technology teacher, a primary foreign language teacher and STEM Initiatives Chair at St. Louis School in Clarksville, Maryland. As a teacher in this digital world, I am excited about the opportunities available to our students and passionate about collaborating on effective instructional strategies. I believe educators are responsible to deliver effective instruction that aligns with the needs and demands of this global digital world. I strongly believe "If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn." (Ignacio Estrada)

I am a member of the Discovery Education Leadership Council (MD), a DEN (Discovery Education Network) Star and a member of the MSET (Maryland Society for Educational Technology) Executive Board. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree from the College of Notre Dame, a Graduate Certificate in Instructional Technology from Goucher College and a Master's Degree in School Administration from Loyola University.
