    Position: 4th Grade Teacher
    School: BH Wood Elementary School

     
    Welcome to 4M! 
     
    I am excited to be returning for my fourth year at the Wood School.  This year is already off to a great start!  Mrs. Peter and I are team-teaching.  We both are teaching math and ELA to our respective homerooms; I am teaching social studies for both 4M and 4P, whereas, Mrs. Peter is teaching science for both 4M and 4P. 
     
    I earned my bachelor of arts from Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA.  I graduated as a government major, with a sociology concentration.  While in undergraduate school, I was incredibly fortunate to study off-campus in an American Justice program at American University in Washington, DC and held an internship with the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children.  I then studied abroad through Syracuse University at the Universite de Strasbourg in Strasbourg France.  I earned my masters in elementary education from UMass Boston. 
     
    I have taught in several communities, and my classroom teaching experience ranges from teaching 4th-8th grade. 
     
    Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or comments you have.  It's an honor being able to work with you and your children.
