Originally from Newtown Square, Pa., (outside of Phila.), I made my way west after graduating from college in Maryland with a B. A. in Elementary Education.  While still residing in the east, I taught 7th and 8th grade English.  After having served in the Navy for 5 years (in San Diego and Hawaii…tough duty!), I received my Masters in Multicultural Education from Pepperdine University.  With a keen desire to help struggling readers, and being an avid reader myself, I also pursued a Reading Specialist  credential at Fresno Pacific University where my husband and I were  living at the time.  I have published several articles on Reading and Writing and made many presentations at  Reading Association Professional Conferences.  I taught at Sonoma Country Day School in Santa Rosa for 13 years and have been fortunate to be part of the awesome McKinley staff since 2003.  And I do not say the word “awesome” lightly.   I am so proud to teach with these very talented teachers!   My husband, John Seil, coordinates the Homework Club and I have two wonderful grown children, Kara and Ryan.  In my leisure time, I enjoy reading, of course, and traveling, practicing Yoga and Pilates and playing with our dog, Chewy!
