2016 aug headshotI began teaching at BHHS in August 2001.  I hold certifications in Social Studies (May 1999) and German (September 2000).  I have primarily taught German, however I have been called upon over the years to teach Spanish I and History 1868-1945, as well as facilitate the Chinese courses. In May 2002, I established Pennsylvania Epsilon Gamma; a chapter of Delta Epsilon Phi- a national honor society for high school students of German. I have planned and executed three exchange trips (two-way travel, 2005, 2006, 2009) with a partner school in Germany, as well as coordinating a visit (one way travel, 2011) from our partner school in Fulda, Germany.  From 2006- 2013, I advised a group of students, who organized the National German Week and National Foreign Language Week or Discovering Languages month.  I was the World Language department head from 2011 -2014.

I enjoy being a student as well as a teacher…
