Welcome to Team Valor! I have been teaching for 17 years, 15 of them here at Lake Shore Middle on the 7th grade floor. I have two degrees, one in secondary English and one in Special Education. I have been coaching Girls on the Run for four seasons now, and find the program highly rewarding. Outside of the classroom I am involved in the Western New York Writing Project. For nine years I have taught a summer writing camp through the project at Canisus.
