About Me...

I have been a professional educator for 29 years! All of my 29 years have been here at Benton Elementary School!  During those years, I have had the opportunity to meet a lot of new people and settle into this area.  I am originally from Westbrook, Maine, growing up just outside of Portland.  

I have one daughter, who attended Benton Elementary School for all of her elementary years, graduating in 2012 from Lawrence High School, our district high school.  After graduation, she went on to college and attended Boston University, right in the heart of Boston!  She has since graduated from BU with a degree in Communication with a concentration in Public Relations and Marketing.  She is now employed at the Boch Center, formally known as Citi Center for the Arts.  Her office is in the Wang Center where she works as a marketing associate.  She has worked with inner city youth in the arts and enjoys everything about Boston!

I am a dog lover! Two years ago I adopted a rescue from Mississippi! Her name is Chloe is a staffordshire terrier/boxer mix and she is one big ball of love! My second fur baby joined us 1 1/2 years ago.  Her name is Stella and she is a miniature dachshund.
