I have had the pleasure of teaching for 25 years. During my career I taught first grade and gave many seminars througout the state of Connecticut on learning centers. I retired this year to take care of my new baby. Yes, dreams do come true even if they take awhile!
I always believed that learning should be fun. I filled my classroom with centers so that the children enjoyed while practicing skills needed for success in first grade.
Teacher of the Year at Algonquin School in 2000. Nominated for Disney Teacher of the Year in 2005.
Masters in Education.
I have retired from teaching and am a new mother. I am happily living in upstate NY with my husband and son.
