Educational experiences include teaching middle and high school English Language Arts,
supervising PreK-12 English Language Arts and World Languages, and serving as director of the preschool program
in Keyport. Most recently, She served as the shared PreK-12 Director of Curriculum and Instruction for the Tri-District
of Atlantic Highlands, Highlands, and Henry Hudson Regional School Districts. She is also currently engaged in the
final stages of completing a doctoral dissertation through Northeastern University, where her research focus is the

"My background in teaching and leadership has instilled in me an enduring conviction that each and every single
child can learn and grow, and deserves to be seen, understood, and supported in ways that respect their unique
individual needs. I am committed to lifelong learning, especially the kind of learning that happens when people
listen to one another and seek to truly understand a shared vision for success. I am joining your school community
during a challenging time in public education, and I recognize that collaborating closely with you is the only way to
ensure that we make informed decisions that build upon the foundations of excellence and pride that already exist
while also finding strategic ways to continuously improve."
