A little bit about me...
I completed my undergraduate and graduate studies at TCNJ, where I was also a member of the cross-country and track teams. I have been fortunate to stay connected to TCNJ as an adjunct professor as well. After graduation, I took an exciting opportunity to teach in Maui County, HI...what a year full of wonderful new friends and adventure! Upon my return to NJ, I continued my teaching career back in my childhood district in Flemington at the intermediate school for almost ten years before taking off a few years to take care of our three children (along with a move to & from OH for Mr. Hayes' job). We found our home back in Pittstown, and have loved raising our family here; becoming a part of the community and the wonderful schools!
When I'm not teaching; I love exploring nature with my kiddos, hiking, cycling, running, and just spending time & making memories with family and friends!
I am so looking forward to learning more about each of you, and sharing many meaningful learning experiences this school year!
