I am a born and raised Newporter who attended the Newport Schools grades K-12. I received my teaching degree from the University of Rhode Island and my master's degree in counseling from Providence College. I am happily married to my husband Matt and together we have six children, five boys and one girl who range in ages from 20-27. Needless to say, I have a full life! I love teaching, reading, cycling and running! I am a very happy, positive person and I just love my job. One of my goals is to have your child love school and learning as much as I do! I also want all of my students to feel safe, accepted and understood. I treat all of my students like family and my hope is that we create a bond that they will never forget.
