This is my 8th year at the Butler Middle School. History is one of my favorite subjects so thrilled to be teaching Social Studies to our 5th graders.  I am an avid traveler and love to immerse myself in the culture of the countries I visit.  In my free time, I love to read, take hikes with my dog, spend time with friends & family, and cheer on our New England sports teams.
