Hello everyone,

I came to Matawan-Aberdeen in January, 2001 to teach during the recess program. In the Fall of 2001, I became a full-time health teacher at Cliffwood Elementary School. Through the years, I have been teaching both Health and Physical Education at Cliffwood, Ravine Drive and Lloyd Road Schools. After being at Ravine Drive Elementary in a full-time position for 10 years, I have been sharing my time teaching Health Education at both Ravine Drive Elementary and Cliffwood Elementary for the past 3 years. With all the health issues facing us today, I find it very rewarding to work with the students from both schools in their classrooms. I look forward to working with them again this year to help them stay healthy and safe.
