I have been an elementary education teacher for 21 years. I have taught first and second grade as well as Basic Skills.
My goal is to create a classroom where children know they are important, feel safe to take risks, realize nothing is impossible and are destined to reach their fullest potential. I will not rush or force my students to fit into a time schedule of achievement, but rather support, encourage and guide them to work at their own pace on their road to accomplishment.
~Nominated for Disney's Teacher of the Year three times. ~Featured in the book "Thank You Teacher, Letters Celebrating Extraordinary Teachers" which was published by Disney.
I earned my Bachelor's Degree from Seton Hall University in the areas of Elementary Education and Psychology. I have a Master's Degree in Education with a Specialization in Early Literacy. I have over 45 Graduate Credits beyond my Master's Degree in the areas of Elementary Education and Social Work.
I am married to a wonderful man and have two sons I adore, ages 8 and 12, that keep me busy!
