On behalf of the staff at Pocono Mountain East, we want to welcome everyone to the 2018-2019 school year! It is an honor to serve as the Principal at East High School, and we look forward to making this a positive and encouraging experience for East students and families. This school year, we will share many new and exciting opportunities together. Parents and families can be confident that students will have access to great staff, opportunities to excel in academics, athletics and the arts and be challenged in a manner that promotes productive growth.  During the school year, there were will be numerous opportunities for families to be actively engaged in their child’s education and this engagement is strongly encouraged.

Among the many goals we have as educators are to promote and foster appropriate positive behaviors, encourage good citizenship and develop in students a sense of pride in their school and community. It is at our core that we want to provide our students the opportunities to learn and grow socially. Achieving these goals requires strong communication, focus on student achievement and social development, and a dedication to our school community. At EHS, we will achieve all of these together.

If you ever have a question or need to discuss any ideas or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Welcome back to the staff and students of Pocono Mountain East High School! I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to work with such a dynamic faculty and student body. As the assistant principal responsible for Grade 11 and Grade 9 G-O, I look forward to working with students and families throughout the year. My goal is to provide each student with guidance as he/she sets high expectations for academic success, and enjoys the benefits of getting involved in all our school has to offer. The majority of my career in education has been in the Pocono Mountain School District. I am confident in my belief that this district works hard to provide a quality experience for our students on their journey to become successful citizens. Our staff strives to challenge students academically, support them and model the Cardinal PRIDE way! As a mother of three, one a student at Swiftwater Intermediate and another at Swiftwater Elementary Center, I feel that Pocono Mountain provides our students and families with many educational and extra-curricular opportunities to become successful, well-rounded young adults upon graduation. I am proud to be a member, both professionally and personally, of the East High School and the Cardinal community!

As the 2018-19 school year commences, I would like to take the opportunity to sincerely welcome all of our incoming freshmen as well as our returning students to the East High School. Each academic year, presents new opportunities for students and staff alike. As I am beginning my administrative career with PMSD, I look forward to the interactions and collaborative opportunities that coincide with this position. I'm proud to represent a district that affords its students extensive supports and services to best assist them in their educational journey. My hope is that each of our students take advantage of the resources the East High School has to offer. It is our mission to create the opportunity for all students to maximize their full potential by being active participants in their education; thus becoming productive and successful citizens.

Nelson Mandela once stated, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." I firmly believe this to be the case, and I hope that our students foster the same belief. 

Let's have a wonderful school year! Go Cardinals!

I would like to extend the warmest welcome to the staff and students of Pocono Mountain East High School. This year promises to open new opportunities not only for our staff and students but for me, too. I look forward to working with the seniors as they prepare to enter the next chapter in their lives. Additionally, I am excited to work with families and students in helping our incoming freshmen adjust to life on the high school level. We are proud to offer our student body a quality education while providing them with ample opportunities for success here at the East High School. I have spent my career, both as a teacher and administrator at Pocono Mountain and have a vested interest in every student's success. I consider it an honor to serve my community, staff and students and I am proud to wear red and white. 

To tell you a little bit about myself, I received my undergraduate degree in Mathematics at Misericordia University and earned my Masters' Degree and administrative certification from Wilkes University. Currently, I am a Doctoral candidate at Widener University and desire to continue my education to enhance the experience of each and every student.
