I have been teaching for 27 years in the primary grades. My experience working with students from diverse backgrounds and ability levels helps me to create products that are differentiated to help you meet the needs of your students.
I give my students the vision to reach for the stars, the skills and fortitude to climb the ladder, and the wisdom to appreciate the beauty of the journey.
My biggest honor is being able to touch the lives of children each and every day. Karen has won her school district's Educator of the Year award. Both sisters have been nominated for Who's Who among America's Teachers.
I have Bachelor and Masters Degrees from SUNY Fredonia in elementary education. I also recently earned my Florida ESE certification.
I recently moved to Summerland Key, FL. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling and golfing!
