I jump started my teaching career as a Director of Head-Start in the Bronx. Then I moved back to Rhode Island and taught for 11 years in Warwick as a kindergarten teacher. When I had my son I dreamed of opening my own school. My dream cane true when he was three My husband and I built from scratch a private nursery and kindergarten school in my back yard on 5 acres of land in East Greenwich, Rhode Island. The school was modeled after an old fashioned schoolhouse, but a modern colorful interior. My dad took sick nine years later, and I sold the school and moved with my son to Florida to help and support my parents. I taught 21 years for Broward County in Florida. I started as a kindergarten teacher, but I also taught pre-first, first, and currently second grade at Atlantic West Elementary. In 1998 I created a website for teachers, parents, and students called Mrs. Alphabet where I could share my knowledge and resources with the cybernet community. I write a free newsletter which integrates the available internet resources with a theme. I am currently teaching second grade gifted at a Title One school as part of the Effective Teacher Program in Broward County.
