I am a New Yorker transplanted to the suburbs, 20 minutes south of Philly. I am both a teacher and a mom of two active little boys. After receiving both my Bachelors in early childhood education and working towards my Masters in elementary education, I taught in a public school in Brooklyn, NY for 3 years. I then relocated to Pennsylvania and taught in a public school in Wilmington, Delaware for 12 years. I taught a wide variety of students from regular education to gifted education. I also have a passion for teaching teachers which led me to designing and delivering professional development courses and workshops to teachers across the state of Delaware. I am also the founder of For The Love of Teachers, a website and blog dedicated to teacher collaboration, professional growth and provides useful resources. www.fortheloveofteachers.com.
