I am currently an Assistant Principal at Lawrence High School, and have been in this position for the last two years. I grew up in South Jersey, received my undergraduate degree from The College of New Jersey, and went to Georgian Court University for my graduate degree. When I am not spending time with my family, friends, and two dogs, I am usually cheering on my Philadelphia teams (Go Eagles and Phillies), training for another marathon or reading a good book on the beach.

As an Assistant Principal, I have led many initiatives and new programs throughout the high school. I have helped transition the high school into a 1:1 initiative for students the last two years, providing training to teachers on effective use of 1:1 devices, as well as provide support to students through the transition. Lawrence High School has an academy system, and I have helped the Arts and Humanities academy with many of their events, such as the Arts Festival and Model Congress, as well as help the Freshman and Sophomore Academies set up grade level meetings with teachers and provide mentoring and tutoring services to students in need. Another new program I brought to Lawrence was Challenge Day, a program designed to end bullying in schools and promote respect and compassion to others.

Before coming to Lawrence Township to become an Assistant Principal, I was an AP United States History teacher, the Varsity field hockey coach, a softball coach, and a technology trainer. I was often on the athletic fields and courts, not only as a coach but also as a site supervisor, ensuring that the fans, parents and athletes demonstrated proper sportsmanship. I also served as Student Council advisor, where I orchestrated the pep rallies, Homecoming festivities, Spirit Week, and Peer to Peer leadership groups.

Thanks to my awesome husband, I am all packed for China! It was tricky only having 40 pounds to work with, especially since I am a compulsive over-packer and I had to fit over 10 pounds worth of gifts from Lawrence schools in my suitcase as well. Luckily my husband is an amazing packer, and got everything to fit and the waiting begins! Our flight leaves Wednesday around noon, so only a few days to go.... read more

It is 3 weeks before we leave for China! Tsun Ju Lin, Lawrence High School's Chinese teacher, and myself are going to China for the 2013 Chinese Bridge Delegation for 8 days, and it is time to prepare. We are currently planning what gifts we would like to bring, and many generous teachers and staff members from throughout the district are providing us with many exciting Lawrence items. We are also figuring out what electronic devices we are bringing so we can keep up with our blog and possibly even connect with the high school while we are away.... read more
