I am excited to be here at Lincoln in my 3rd year as your proud principal and my 18th year as an Educator. Prior to this position I served as an Assistant Principal at Maloney High School for 4 years, and before that I was right here at Lincoln as an Assistant Principal for 3 years. Before my administrative career in Meriden, I was an English and Social Studies teacher at Cromwell High School for 8 years, and also served as the Athletic Director there for 3 years. I have also had the privilege of being a Varsity Boys Basketball Coach for 7 years and a Varsity Golf Coach for 6 years. I am a proud graduate of the University of Connecticut. My path to education has been shaped by my parents, who both taught for over 30 years in the Hartford school system.
Prior to becoming an Assistant Principal at Lincoln Middle School, I was a School Counselor and 9th-grade Transition Specialist at Maloney Highschool. I received my BA in psychology from the University of Connecticut. I completed my MS in Counseling and 6th Year in Educational Leadership at Southern Connecticut State University. I am also an LPC. I live in Wallingford with my wife and 2 children. I am proud to be a Lincoln Leopard and look forward to working with you and your child.
Prior to becoming an Assistant Principal at Lincoln Middle School, I was a grade 5 teacher, reading coach, and interim assistant principal within the Meriden Public School system. I received my BS in Human Development from the University of Connecticut. I completed my MAT at Quinnipiac University and graduated from Southern Connecticut State University with my remedial reading, reading consultant, and Educational Leadership certifications. I live in Wallingford Connecticut with my husband and 3 children. It is my vision that we grow together as a community of lifelong learners.
