Hello and Welcome to York Township Elementary!

I have been the Principal at York Township Elementary School since 2016, and am proud to work with the professional staff who serve our community and families who attend our school.  I believe strongly in educating the whole child - academically, emotionally, and socially - especially in the formative years of elementary education.

Before arriving at York Township, I taught Mathematics, Social Studies, and English Language Arts at Linglestown and Central Dauphin Middle Schools in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  In 2013, I became an Assistant Principal for the Susquenita School District in Duncannon, Pennsylvania, working at both the Elementary and Middle School levels.  I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in K-6 Elementary Education at Penn State University before earning my Master’s Degree in Educational Instructional Media and Technology from Wilkes University and my Pennsylvania School Administration Certification from Cabrini College.  Personally, I am married, have two children, two cats, and a dog. Our family enjoys being outdoors, sports and exercise, reading, playing games, and all things Disney.


Marie Curie once stated “You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end, each of us must work for his own improvement and, at the same time, share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful.”  This mindset simply yet eloquently parallels the deepest foundations of public education.  Intending to build a better, stronger civilization for tomorrow by investing in those whom will inherit it, we as educators have a fundamental responsibility to do whatever we can to improve the individuals coming through our doors each day.


With that in mind, frequent, respectful, and honest communication between home and school is a crucial component of creating a successful educational experience for each child.  I am always interested in speaking with families regarding any questions, concerns, or feedback you may have about your child’s education.  Please feel welcome to contact me via email at or phone at 717-741-2281.


I look forward to working with your family as we partner together for an amazing school year!
