As your interim superintendent, it is an honor to serve the Berlin Community School community with a focus on programs that support all children academically, socially, and emotionally. For more than twenty-eight years, I have been honored to serve South Jersey school districts in both teaching and leadership roles. 

My professional journey started in Winslow Township where I taught grades 3-5 for ten years. My first leadership role, more than 17 years ago, began as a supervisor of grants, where I had the unique opportunity to establish and create an after-school program for the at-risk population at Winslow Township Middle School. I have served as both an elementary and middle school principal as well as a curriculum supervisor of ELA & Social Studies. Most recently, I led a small school district serving students in PK - 6th grade.

My heart has always been with leading small school districts because it gives me an opportunity to play a vital role in all aspects of the daily operations of a school district. Response to intervention, special education, and preschool expansion are among my greatest passions because these programs provide opportunity for a child to thrive when given new or different experiences. 

The path that led me to Berlin Community School has enabled me to understand my responsibilities as a leader through several lenses. Most importantly, the children are my north star. Child advocacy has become my life’s work; when any child crosses the threshold, they become my responsibility and I treat every decision I make as if I were a parent taking care of my own child.
