Hello! I am beyond excited to begin my FIFTH year at Henry Hudson. As an HHRS alum, I feel right at home and thrilled to be back. I was a graduate of DeSales University where I recieved my BA in Musical Theater and Secondary Education with a Minor in English. I teach both 7th and 8th grade Language Arts and am an advisor for various clubs listed above. In my free time, I'm an avid singer, director, choreographer, reader, and instrumentalist.
