Welcome to the 2023-2024 School Year

  • ELA

    I am thrilled to begin my eighth year teaching at H.B.W. School! Even though I was raised a few miles up Bloomfield Avenue in Roseland, I have always viewed Verona as a special place. Verona really is the quintessential "small town USA." There is so much to love about Verona. Some of my favorite things include its walkable downtown, historic homes and buildings, and beautiful parks.

    This year, I'll be teaching Sixth Grade English Language Arts and Core Strategies/Support Class. I'm also co-teaching with other talented teachers in math, science, social studies, and ELA. I'm looking forward to focusing my energy on helping all students, but especially those students with different learning styles. 

    In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have three sons, thirteen-year-old Kevin, twelve-year-old Jack, and eight-year-old Thomas. I also love to read, listen to podcasts, cook, garden, and get my hands dirty with a slew of DIY projects.

    I'm looking forward to a wonderful year as one of your teachers!
