DIR. OF SPECIAL ED
I am thrilled to be a part of the Mother Teresa family. I graduated from Immaculata University with an undergraduate degree in early childhood, elementary, and special education. I have my master's degree in education along with my reading specialist certification from Cabrini University. I taught second grade for six years. When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family and coaching basketball at the Agnes Irwin School. I am looking forward to working with you and your child this school year!
