Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Cornell / Reading Teacher, READ 180

I am a life-long Berkeley County resident. After graduating from Shepherd College, I began my teaching career at St. Joseph’s School teaching 5th grade. My next adventure was at Berkeley Heights Elementary School in third grade, I also taught at Marlowe Elementary and Potomack Intermediate, where I enjoyed both third and fourth graders.

Currently, I am in my 34th  year of teaching at Hedgesville Middle School where I teach 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in our READ 180 class. This is an awesome reading intervention program that motivates students to work up to their potential and improve their reading lexiles. Out motto is, “If you want it - you can have it.” I encourage the students to believe in themselves and work hard to achieve their goals.

I have been married to by best friend and soulmate for 29 years.  We have 2 children and 4 grandchildren.  In my spare time, I enjoy reading good books and spending time with family and friends.
