I have had 13 years of teaching experience and 3 years of administration experience. I absolutely love my job! I am currently an assistant principal but am very involved with creating lessons and helping teachers adapt the NYS common core standards into the classroom. I am a teacher on special assignment and still get to teach one class. I can't let the classroom fun go. I am always creating new units and helping others be successful.
When I teach I am full of energy and enthusiasm. Students learn best when I am excited about the content that they are going to learn. I try to engage students with fun activities to keep them all involved
When I was a student teacher, long, long time ago. I won the Best student teacher award from Fredonia State. I won money and a certificate! I thought it was so cool!
I have attended several colleges: Okaloosa Walton Community College Jamestown Business College Jamestown Community College Fredonia State College Associates Degree in General Science Bachelor's Degree in English Education Master's Degree in English Administrative Certificate for School Building Leader
I am now an Assistant Principal and can't throw away all of my units that I have developed in the last 13 years of my career. I am still involved with the English Curriculum and help create, grade, and align it with my teachers. I am up dating all of my units to align with the NYS Common Core Standards. I am also part of the STLE-3 Team and will share many of the interim assessments and data charts that we have created. In addition, I am the AIS coordinator at the middle school and am involved with the data collection at our level (5-8)
