I am a middle school English teacher, who has been teaching in an affluent district on Long Island for the past 15 years. I have had the opportunity to teach 6th, 7th and 8th English Language Arts. I love teaching literature and writing, and I love inspiring kids to learn the love of reading. I am also the advisor of National Junior Honor Society, and I am continually instilling respect and pride in my classroom.
Creativity and color is key in my classroom, as I minored in art. I love when my students are interactive and are out of their seats. If they are engaged and it works, let it be!
I received a proclamation by my county executive for promoting creativity in my classroom.
Bachelor's in English and a Master's in Literacy and Reading
Besides being dedicated to my profession, I am dedicated to my family and my 8-year old son who is starting 3rd grade! I also had a very successful business on Etsy called WordandVerse, which I put on vacation for awhile until my son starts school. I was working two full time jobs!
