Hi!  I feel very fortunate to be teaching at the John Powers Center.  I have been teaching for 23 years and I am so lucky to be part of a group of educators at John Powers Center who are passionate, energetic, and have a true love of teaching!  My goal is to instill a love of learning and a love of reading to all my students! I feel very passionate about the importance of incorporating technology into the classroom. I have been taking graduate courses in technology for the past few years and I recently obtained a Mobile Technology Learning Certification.  My goal is to integrate mobile technology into the classroom to create and support meaningful student-directed learning.  What an exciting time to be a teacher!  Outside of the classroom, I have been married to a wonderful man named Kevin for 28 years. My husband and I are incredibly proud of our two beautiful daughters, Steph and Amanda.  They bring so much joy and happiness to our lives!
