I have lived on Fishers Island since 1989 when I came to take the position at Fishers Island School. My family and I are very involved in our community as active members of the Fishers Island Fire Department where I currently serve as EMS Chief.
I have been teaching at Fishers Island School for 27 years, and love it! Holding certifications in grades 5-12 general science, biology, chemistry, and physics allows me to teach all grades 7 – 12. I also have completed 54 graduate credits in various areas of science to enhance my instruction practices. Additionally, I have been certified through the University of Connecticut to teach a college level oceanography course to our high school students for college credit.
As a former college athlete, I feel strongly about health and athletics. I proudly serve as the coach for the girls’ basketball team with the support of the world’s best assistant coach. I am also a certified life guard which allows our students to take advantage of the beautiful beaches and swim tank on the island. When I do find some free time, I can often be found biking, swimming, or working out at the gym.
