Welcome to my home away from home on the internet. I have been teaching English at Lower Cape May for 20 years.

Professionally, I graduated from Rutgers College in 1989 with a B.A. in American Literature. Following a few years of exploring the country and working in outdoor recreation, I went back to earn a post-baccalaureate degree in English Education from Glassboro(now Rowan). After student teaching in Vineland High School (9-10 building), I secured a position teaching tenth grade Honors English at Vineland High School. After teaching there for one year, I moved to the D’Ippolitto Middle School where I taught for two years. After three years in Vineland I had the opportunity to return home. I have been at LCMR since 1992. Additionally, I have coached both swimming and diving. I am currently the LCMR Educators of America adviser. If you wish to see my resume just Email me.
