This is my 6th year at St. Joseph Regional Elementary. I first came here when I began working for Camden County Educational Commission as an Instructional Aide. I was very fortunate to be placed at St. Joe where I was immediately welcomed in as family. This year I began teaching 6-8th Math and 7th Religion.
Teaching Style/Philosophy/Interesting Things I Do In the Classroom
After teaching main concepts to the full class, I like to break the students into small groups for peer to peer mentoring as I work with each group individually. I am filled with joy as the students begin to grasp new concepts that they initially found challenging.
What I Like Most About St. Joseph Regional School
From the very beginning, I felt welcomed. St. Joe has a family atmosphere that permeates every aspect of our school.
Why I Would Recommend St. Joseph Regional School
St. Joe offers a strong, high level curriculum that allows for focus on the individual. The teachers all care for the students and create a family atmosphere that encourages learning.
Interests Outside of Teaching/Personal Life
At home I enjoy spending time with my 4 Beagles. My son and I travel to participate in competitive Pokemon Card tournaments. I have a strong passion for theater and am President of Hammonton Towne Drama, the youth theater in town.
