This is my 14th year at Beverly Hills Middle School where I have taught 8th grade and Playwrights, but currently I am teaching 6th grade and creative writing. Writing is my passion, as is the study of Literature and life-long learning. I am married, have two daughters (of whom I am very proud) and we have two pups - Tab the Lab and Frankie our pit rescue. When not down the shore, Mr. Ruddy and I love to travel. Last year we traveled to London and saw a play at the Globe Theatre. Before becoming a teacher, I worked in business and social work. I dreamed of returning to West Chester University to gain my teaching certification and I view teaching as a vocation! I have also been studying how the brain works for 20 years and have been using brain-informed techiques in my classroom. I am looking forward to a successful year with another class of 6th graders.
Just remember the number one rule in my classroom is NO MEANNESS, ONLY KINDNESS!
