The Biggest Advantage to Teaching at an Independent School:

Smaller class sizes which helps me to reach out to each and every student. 


Why I Love Harrisburg Academy:

Having the freedom and the flexibility in planning our lessons along with the smaller class sizes and the open-mindedness of the community. 

A Memorable Moment at the Academy:

When I see my students participating at Science Fair after having worked so hard on their projects and moving on to participate in science competitions in the Upper School.

My Favorite Book:

My favorite book is whatever I am reading at the moment.  I just finished reading "The Lowland" by Jhumpa Lahiri.
