Hello!
This is my third year teaching at Whitesides Elementary School.  I received Bachelors degrees in Early Childhood Education and Special Education from Mercyhurst University. I also have my Masters in Teaching, Learning, and Advocacy of Diverse Learners with a certificate in ESOL from College of Charleston. My passion as an educator is advocating for inclusive communities and fostering independence in all students. I'm originally from Syracuse, NY  (Go 'Cuse!) and moved to Mount Pleasant in 2014.

My Teacher's Assistant is Ms. Lidia Kier. Ms. Lidia helps our students create wonderful artwork, stay focused during academic tasks, and so much more! This will be her fourth year at Whitesides.
