TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am entering my twenty-fifth year as a teacher in Westfield, New Jersey. During this time I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. This year I will continue working as a Reading/Math Intervention Teacher for Grades 1 and 2. My goal has been to encourage my students to become independent and creative thinkers. I am always humbled by what my students remember and the projects that have made an impact on their learning.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is effective, creative, and flexible.
