I began teaching in Lowell in 1988. I left Lowell briefly to teach in Las Vegas, Nevada from 1991-1996. After my time in Las Vegas, I returned to my hometown of Lowell, Massachusetts, where I reside and work. I love teaching first grade because of all the tremendous growth that takes place for these students. However, I have also taught second, third, and fourth grades. The position that brought me to Moody was a Math/Science teacher. This was unique because I taught science to all students and was a Math Coach for the staff. I consider myself lucky to be a part of the Moody School Family.
