I'm in my twelfth year of teaching. I have taught sixth grade now for three years, after nine years at 4th grade, and am loving my fabulous middle-schoolers!

Was included in Circle of Excellence three times during undergraduate experience. Finalist for Elementary Education Undergraduate of the Year, as a (very) mature student.
Graduated summa cum laude from Buffalo State College as an adult non-traditional student. Received M.Ed in 2006.
Still loving the actual art and science of teaching. Nothing compares to that moment when a student's eyes light up and the 'aha' appears! !
