I am currently teaching first grade and LOVE it! This is my 10th year with first graders. I've also taught second grade for two years and was a media specialist for nine years. I am a children's author and have published with Scholastic, ABDO/Magic Wagon, Enslow, Carson-Dellosa and Instructor.
I'm passionate about teaching and learning from my students; structured yet flexible! :)
Named Teacher of the Year, I'm a children's author of several books.
Undergraduate degree in Elementary Education at Seton Hall University and Masters Degree in Information and Library Science at Rutgers University.
I'm a mother of two and married to a teacher. Lots of teacher talk 'round here!
