Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! This is my 12th year teaching, and in my fourth state! I taught 5 years in Pennsylvania, 4 years in South Carolina, 1 year in Colorado, and now I am in my 2nd year in North Carolina. I earned a Bachelor's degree from West Chester University of PA and a Master's degree in Health Education from East Stroudsburg University of PA. I was named 2017 Teacher of the Year at my school in South Carolina. I am married and have a 4 year old son named Carson, a newborn son named Cam, and a 1 year old crazy chocolate lab/pitbull mix named Stanley. Health and Fitness are my biggest passions, and I am an avid distance runner and have run in two Boston Marathons, and qualified for a third in 2021. I also do Crossfit. I love being outside and moving my body any way that I can! I am a Penn State and Philadelphia Eagles fan and I love college Basketball. Go Syracuse!
My Philosophy for Teaching Health and PE is that every person, regardless of age or ability can live a healthy and fit lifestyle. Everyone has their own wonderful strengths and interests to make fitness their own.
