We have lived in Newtown for 17 years and have been in the CR School District for 4 years now.
I went to Shippensburg University for my degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Reading and I have a Masters in Reading and Language Arts from Rider University. I am a certified Elementary School teacher K-6 and a certified Reading Specialist K-12.
My husband Kevin and I have two children, Noah is in 3rd grade and Ava is in First.
I have my own Professional Organizing Business. I taught both first (7 years) and second (5 years) grade in New Jersey for 13 years.
I love donating and supporting any charities that focus on children and families- St. Jude, Penn/CHOP NICU hospitals.
I love organizing, decorating, baking with my kids, exercising, running, and shopping.
I love the Welcome Back Picnic and all the excitement it brings for the new school year-seeing old friends and making new ones. I also LOVE Trunk or Treat…Halloween is my favorite holiday (and my kids’ too!) and we love to dress up!
I’ve been on the Board for three years now, and was VP for two years and now I am president, focusing on the fundraising aspect for the organization. I joined the PTO to be more involved in my children’s school experience and meet new people and support the amazing teachers and staff at NES. And as a former teacher…it’s hard for me to not want to be involved in school. As a teacher, I saw what a huge positive impact the PTO had on the teachers, students, and school community, and I wanted to be a part of this amazing group that gives back and supports our teachers and school.

Definitely trunk or treat! I have always loved fall and I recommend setting up a trunk so its easy for your kids to find you at the end!
Last year was the only year all 3 of my children overlapped at NES so it was the perfect year for me to volunteer.
Read the emails! Some are long with a ton of info but its the best way to stay updated about PTO and school events.
My family loves the beach and you can often find us in Margate on the weekends in the summer.
