Although I have been an employee in Margate for many years, I wanted to take a moment to share my professional history as I begin this new role for our district.
After graduating from Ursinus College with a degree in mathematics, I began my career as a high school math teacher and basketball coach at Marlboro High School in Central NJ. In 1992, I was hired to teach at Eugene A. Tighe Middle School and began my multifaceted educational experience that has now entered its third decade in Margate City School District. I have taught math, reading and language arts, basic skills, school librarian, and gifted classes. A sabbatical leave in 2000 provided me the opportunity to complete leadership projects and work daily with the building principal, Mr. Philip Munafo, as I completed my Master's degree in Supervision and Curriculum Development from Rowan University. Upon receipt of my graduate degree, I began my role as Margate's Curriculum Coordinator in 2001. Over the years, my role expanded to include all elements of instructional technology, so I continued my education with graduate work at Richard Stockton College of NJ in the Master's of Instructional Technology program. During the period of November 2010 through March 2011, I worked as the Interim Principal at Tighe School due to a maternity leave, and in 2014 I was promoted to Supervisor of Instruction to facilitate more responsibilities in the district, specifically adding the ability to complete and monitor teacher observations, mentoring, and professional development.
On a personal note, I live in Margate with my husband and two children, all three of whom attended Margate Schools from Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.

I have been a Principal and Director of Special Projects in the Margate Public Schools since 2000.

I taught high school English in New Jersey and New York for 15 years in both Catholic and public schools. I was also a baseball and basketball coach during that time. Currently, I am an adjunct professor in the FDU Teacher Training Program. I previously taught in Stockton's Alternate Route Program for 8 years and was an adjunct professor in Georgian Court University's graduate program (administration).
