TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I spent the majority of my teaching career in fourth and fifth grades. Fourth grade was a self-contained classroom, which allowed me to teach all the core subjects. I especially enjoyed the flexibility it afforded -- if the kids were engaged in a writing project, I could let them continue and play "catch up" with my lesson plans the following day. My fifth grade experience was dynamic as well. I wrote and taught U.S. history to three sections of fifth graders and language arts to my homeroom students. It was the best of two worlds: middle school rotations in an elementary classroom where you had your homeroom kids for most of the day.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I've been told by my administrators, parents, and former students that I set the bar high. My students know that i have expectations, but that I'm there to help them meet them. I instill confidence in them and they feel very good about themselves! I'm a proponent of differentiated learning and try to incorporate a myriad of learning styles in my lessons. There is a lot of activity in my classroom and a lot of art projects!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I've been voted Most Influential Teacher by former students

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated cum laude from Simmons College, in Boston, MA. My major was communications and I minored in French. I also am a certified chef and worked in the gourmet food industry before becoming a teacher. I earned my teacher certification from Moravian College and have taken numerous workshops and courses to enhance my teaching.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I've had the good fortune to have worked in different sectors. I worked on Capitol Hill for my Congressman from Delaware (my home state) and on a Senate committee. I moved to New York City and worked for The Silver Palate, a gourmet food company where I was the Manufacturing Director. I also completed a chef training course and taught cooking classes to both adults and children. When I switched to a career in elementary education, I donated cooking classes to help raise funds for the school. Recently, I've been creating and selling recipes to Fine Cooking magazine in my spare time.
