Mahon

I feel extremely grateful to be joining such a knowledgeable and talented group of teachers at Saint Basil Academy!  I graduated from SBA in 2008 and have always dreamed of returning to my alma mater as an educator. Upon graduation, I went on to attend West Chester University where I earned a B.A. in English with an emphasis on writing.  I accepted a teaching position right out of college and taught English to 7th and 8th grade students for six years. During that time, I realized just how much I enjoyed teaching young people how to develop their reading and writing skills and I enrolled at Holy Family University for my secondary education certification and my M.A. in English.

As an educator, nothing brings me greater joy than helping my students learn how to truly appreciate the power of language. It is my greatest belief that a student who can write well and speak well can truly do anything they set their mind to. I love all types of genres and writing styles and look forward to a great year exploring classic pieces of literature, contemporary works by new authors, and anything and everything in between!
