Degrees and Certifications:
Hello and welcome to my class! I was born and raised in New Jersey. I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree from East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania, then a Masters Degree in Elementary Education and a Reading Specialist Certificate from William Paterson University in New Jersey.
Teaching is my passion. My teaching experience in New Jersey and Florida has included 2nd-5th grades. I believe in continually challenging myself to learn by reading and putting research to practice. I served as a Writing Demonstration teacher for Pinellas County for 10 years and have published 2 books, an article for “The Reading Teacher”, and a newspaper supplement for “The St. Petersburg Times”. I love teaching math and science as much as literacy. I try to bring creative projects into all of the curriculum.
My husband and I have 2 grown daughters who attended Curtis, a dog and 6 cats. Outside of school, I spend my time in church activities, walking, kayaking, art activities, and gardening.
