I have taught for thirty years within a public school district in Western New York. During this time I have worked as a Special Education Teacher and have also taught Kindergarten, Third and Sixth Grade. I spent six years out of the classroom working with new teachers as a full-time Mentor Teacher.
Students need to be actively engaged with content and curriculum.

I earned a Bachelor's of Science in Special Education from the State University of NY at Geneseo and a Master's of Science in Learning & Behavioral Disorders from the State University of New York @ Buffalo. I have taken various professional development sessions and courses throughout the past twenty years and spend my time reading about best practices in the classroom.
I have been happily married for twenty-eight years and have two wonderful sons and a lovely daughter in-law.
