My Story

I have a Bachelors in Physical Education from SUNY Brockport and a Masters in Physical Education from Canisius College. I love to travel and although I don’t usually go far from home, visiting a different city (especially if it has a beach) is a nice change of pace. I’m an avid reader and you can always find me with a book in my lap. I read an average of 50 books a year. I came to McLean in 2002 and I teach Physical Education to grades 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, and 8. I coach at the Middle School level – volleyball, wrestling and softball. My favorite moment is when a student that has been practicing a skill over and over, can finally do it! I like that McLean is a small enough school that it gives everyone a chance to participate on a sports team that wouldn’t necessarily get the opportunity at a bigger school.
