I am a second generation "Bulldog". My grandparents moved to Alden when my father was 3. My father graduated from Alden. My siblings and I graduated from Alden. My children are Alden graduates. Alden is, truly, my home.
I have two wonderful children that I am immensely proud of, Katie (class of 2016) and Eddie (class of 2019). My husband, Ed, and I have been married since 1997.
I graduated from Nazareth College of Rochester with a BA in History and a Concentration in Elementary and Special Education. I have a MS in Education (Reading) from SUNY Fredonia. I started teaching in 1997 for Cattaraugus-Allegany BOCES as a 6:1:1 self-contained Special Education Teacher. From 1998-2006, I taught in the Salamanca City Central Schools- 4 years in Special Education, 4 years as in Social Studies. In 2006, my family made the decision to leave the southern tier and move north to Alden. I have been teaching Social Studies here since.
