Curriculum and Instruction

I grew up in Massachusetts. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania with a B.A. in English and a M.S.Ed. in Secondary Education, I moved to New Hampshire to teach middle and high school English and raise my family in Rye. 

More recently, I recently received my Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of New Hampshire, which has provided a deep foundation for the work I do as the Director of Curriculum and Instruction for the Alton Central School.

Over the years, my love of community service has led to many community volunteer positions including PTO President, President of the Portsmouth Swim Team, coach for Portsmouth City Soccer Club, and board member of Bedrock Gardens. Right now I am busy adjusting to an empty nest, and I spend most of my free time playing with my two dogs, Winston and Archie, and cheering on my 5 children as they launch their adult lives.
