HEAD OF SCHOOL
When I returned home from college I worked for US Airways cleaning the airplanes. I was young and enjoyed the perks of free travel as well as doing things young adults do. I then worked for John Hancock Insurance as an underwriter. I was handling large cases and traveling to Boston frequently, but still not satisfied with my professional life.
So I enrolled in the Cabrini College graduate program to obtain my Master in Education and I began my teaching career in the Upper Darby School District. During my tenure in Upper Darby I completed my Educational Leadership certification at Cabrini College and was hired as a middle school assistant principal in Southeast Delco School District. I served the SEDelco community as an asst. principal, then as a principal before moving to Chichester School District as a principal. I was fortunate to work with wonderful students, families, teachers and staff members while serving the community.
The road called “Life” presented some personal challenges so I made a decision to become an Instructional Support Specialist for the past two years so I could spend the time needed with my family. During my experience in the Port Richmond schools, I really enjoyed connecting with the teachers and students in the classrooms. We were building relationships, talking about teaching, Growth Mindset, Differentiated Instruction. I was challenging the teachers with the question: how can we turn up the “H.E.A.T” in our classrooms?
H = Higher Level thinking
E = Engaged Learning
A = Authentic “Real Life” Connections
T = Integrate Technology
I am truly excited to be the new Head of School at Wyncote Academy. I am getting to know the students and I enjoy visiting the classrooms to hear and see what they are learning. I love talking with the students about setting personal goals, finding what they are passionate about and how we can help to motivate them to be their best. I am a compassionate, hands on leader with the students’ best interest as my #1 priority. Join me in making Wyncote a remarkable experience for our students.
