Welcome to Homeroom 213!
This is my fifth year at Hillcrest Elementary School. I am very familiar with all the great things that the Upper Darby School District contributes to our community because I am an alumnus. I walked the same hallways and had some of the same teachers as your child. After I graduated from Upper Darby High School, I attended West Chester University where I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in History. In addition to my degree, I have certifications in Middle School Math and Science. Last year, I completed my Master's Degree at Cabrini University.
Before teaching at Hillcrest, I taught sixth-grade math at Beverly Hills Middle School which was an incredible experience. I was involved in the after-school detention program, bus duty before school, emergency evacuation team and after-school homework help. Since becoming a part of the Hillcrest staff, I have joined various teams including the PBIS team, Social Committee, Running Club, and the Basketball Team.
I remained involved in the community for a few years coaching Drexel Hill Raiders Basketball. However, after enrolling in a Master’s program at Cabrini University and had to step back from coaching. Other hobbies of mine include attending concerts and stand-up acts, watching and participating in sports (other than basketball), music, reading, and spending time with friends and family.
I have spent most of my life right here in Upper Darby. I am extremely blessed to be teaching right where it all started. This is where my heart is and I am so happy to be back to help this community continue to grow. I am looking forward to the adventures this new school year will bring.
