Degrees and Certifications:
Hi there! I wanted to take some time to introduce myself! This is my first year teaching in Long Branch but it is my 10th year teaching Physical Education and Health. I was born in Aviero, Portugal and moved to North Newark when I was a toddler. I went to High School in Rahway, NJ and after I graduated from Kean University, I began my career teaching at Rahway's 7th & 8th grade Academy.
My family and I recently settled into our forever home in Monmouth county and I am now teaching at GLC! When I am not teaching, I am spending time with my family. My family consists of my awesome husband, Dan, and step son, Jordan. We love to travel, hike, and spend time with our three dogs. Some of my favorite hobbies are creating macrame’ art, rollerblading, and indoor cycling. I am also a certified cycle instructor!
I feel so lucky to be teaching in this wonderful district and look forward to meeting all of my great students and their families!
