 Welcome to my LHS teacher page. Let's make it a great year together!


A little bit about me...

I am a graduate of Rutgers University and hold a master's degree in teaching from Montclair State University. This will be my tenth year of teaching and my eighth here in Lyndhurst. I am currently reading Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. I have three pets: a miniature pinscher named Bruiser, a beagle mix named PJ, and a cat named Boo Radley. 

Please check your class' page frequently for important dates, assignments, links, handouts, and other information.

Although this page is updated regularly, your class' Google Classroom page will be the primary source of handouts, assignments, links, video lessons, announcements, and more. Be sure to log into Classroom and check your school email daily!

Feel free to email me at if you have any questions or concerns.


2020-2021 School Year Google Classroom Codes:

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year! I know the beginning of this school year looks different than any we've ever experienced, but I am so excited to get to know and work with each one of you. Please join your class' Google Classroom by using the codes below. Note: Please use your schedule to find your class period, as I have multiple sections of English I Honors and Public Speaking.
