Hi! Welcome to Glendale-Kenly Elementary Health and Physical Education! This is my 2nd year year at Glendale-Kenly Elementary School and my 19th year teaching PK-5 Health and Physical Education.
I am orginally from New Jersey where I grew up in a magical lake community. I had many sports available to me especially in the summer. This is where I decided that teaching elementary physical education & health was what I really wanted to pursue as a career. After 4 great years at West Virginia University, I went back home to New Jersey where I taught PE and health for 8 years as well as coached swimming and basketball.
I am a mom to 3 sons, 2 daughter-in-laws, and 2 granddaughters. I enjoy sewing sweet dresses and quilts for the girls, but also home accessories with my small sewing business--Creative Custom Sewing. I also try to play as much tennis as I can!
