I have been teaching 6th grade for the last 10 years. In my school 6th grade classes are NOT departmentalized so I've taught every subject. Yes I do it all !!! Language Arts Literacy, Math, Science and Social Studies. I have also served as the Advanced Mathematics teacher for the last 7 years while also coaching girls basketball and soccer at our high school. During the summer I usually work our summer program where I have taught grades 5-7.
One of my colleges has nicknamed me "involve me." I really do strive to make learning as student centered and FUN as possible. I love incorporate technology and have students use technology whenever possible. I would describe my classroom as a student centered- project based learning environment.

I attended a remarkable boarding school in central Pennsylvania that truly shaped who I am today. After high school I attended Fairleigh Dickinson University. I was part of a 5 year program where I received an undergraduate degree in Sociology and Master of Arts in Elementary Education. I have continued to be a life long learner, taking additional graduate courses through the College of New Jersey Regional Training Center.
I am truly committed this profession and the students I teach. For me its not a job, it is a life style choice. What a privilege and honor it is to shape young minds and make a difference in the lives of people everyday. I love what I do and can't see myself doing anything else.
