Originally from outside of Philadelphia, I moved to Maryland and attended Towson University with a degree in Special Education/Math Education. I have worked in education as a teacher, paraeducator, and substitute for 18 years. I have been teaching at New Town for the last 10 years. I am what you would call a “total nerd” when it come to math, and I am certain my love of the different topics comes through in my teaching.

Outside of being a teacher, I continue to own my “total nerd” status with my love of Star Wars and Harry Potter. My past students will vouch that I will gladly talk either for quite a while. My main hobby was playing rugby for over 20 years, making the national playoffs with my club a handful of times. Since my retirement, I have picked up some less intense hobbies of biking, cooking, hiking and disc golf. I enjoy being outdoors as much as possible and spending time with my family.

I attended Towson University and majored in criminal justice and minored in psychology. With that I wanted to pursue juvenile justice, and even tried my hand at the police force. Neither of those quite panned out, so I spent 6.5 years working for the state of MD at various agencies. I was great at my job, but I never felt fulfilled. A year ago I was given the unique opportunity to pursue a career in education; a career I never desired or saw myself having, yet I took the leap of faith and signed on as a special education math teacher for the 21-22 school year. Here I am a year later and I can honestly say I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else; I absolutely LOVE my job! It has its challenges, no doubt, but the fulfillment I get from teaching is unlike anything I’ve experienced at any other job.

In addition to the 100 kids I have during the day, I am the mother of an incredible 8 year old little girl whom I absolutely adore. I enjoy working out, and I loooove food (hence why I have to work out). I am currently pursuing my teaching certification, and plan to pursue my masters in special Ed once I’m done with that. Everyone’s path is different, and I’m so glad that mine lead me to New Town.

Originally from northeast of Philadelphia, PA. I went to Eastern University (same school as Bryan Stevenson!) and majored and Math and Secondary Education. I then began teaching and my first job I was hired because the principal thought I spoke Spanish(Not really sure why). I got married and had a few kids. We eventually moved down to Maryland and then we had a few more kids. Our house was full and we did not want to buy a bigger car so we stopped with kids after 4. After commuting to PA to work, I decided my car would not last very long driving this far everyday, so I got a job at New Town. The joke was on me because, although New Town is in Maryland, it was just as far away as my school in PA was. Oh well. Good thing my car is a beast! This summer, our landlord decided he was moving back to America and decided to kick us out. Lucky for me we now live only 20 minutes away! I knew it would all work out in the end. I have now been teaching math for 12 years and this is my 5th year at New Town. I am known for having the best beard at New Town. There are many who try to emulate, but only one Kramer beard.

I am from the Baltimore area, and attended Baltimore County Public Schools before attending Towson University for my undergrad and I am now attending UMBC for my master's degree. Shortly after graduating from Towson, I moved to San Antonio, TX, but last year I moved back home and became part of the New Town family.

A Baltimore County native, I grew up right around the corner from New Town High School. I didn't attend, as I went to Eastern Tech High School, but my 3 sisters did, so I am no stranger to NTHS. I received my Bachelor's in Journalism from the illustrious Hampton University, where I also minored in Math. I am currently pursuing my Master's in Teaching at Stevenson University. This will be my 6th year teaching, but my 3rd as a full-time BCPS educator, coming from Sudbrook Magnet Middle.

I am a new mother to a beautiful baby boy. I enjoy time with my family often. I'm a foodie for sure, a travel enthusiast, lover of all things Beyoncé, and a die-hard Ravens fan!
