Hello Everyone! I was born and raised in northeast Philadelphia and  attended Father Judge High School. I moved to Somers Point in 2001. I have been teaching since 2002. I now have 2 children who attend St. Joseph’s and one son who attends Mainland High School. My one son is in 8th and my daughter 5th grade. One of my favorite things to do is take my two sons to see the Phillies in Spring Training every March and watch my daughter dance. I am a Baseball phanatic and travel all over to watch my sons play.

4th Marking Period

Most of us should be comfortable with Edmodo by now. In the last marking period we are going to start working at the same pace we were when we were in school. Hopefully this ends soon and we will return to school to finish the year!

Edmodo frequently “glitches” when we are trying to post assignments. Please be patient with us and check back for assignments. I will let you know in Edmodo when all assignments have been posted for the day.

Remote Learning Plan

  Mrs. Armstrong and I will be utilizing Edmodo. Each day your child’s lessons will be posted on Edmodo. As a back-up the lessons will also be posted on our websites. If you shall need any assistance or have any questions do not hesitate to email us to discuss.

Test Preparation


Study Smart!

It is better to review vocabulary/spelling words each night instead of waiting to study only on the night before the test. Please review the weekly story as well as workbook pages covered during the week.


Signed Test

I would like all graded test that are sent home to be signed and returned to school. This way if there is ever a concern about a grade or a certain area I would have a hard copy on hand. Thank You!
