I began my teaching career on Long Island teaching in the Farmingdale Public Schools and in Jericho as a Pre-kindergarten teacher. Upon completion of my master's degree I was offered a position in the New York City Department of Education where I taught first grade, ENL and special education. I returned back to to Long Island as an ENL teacher and am absolutely loving it! I am working towards a doctorate degree in Teaching and Learning.
Active hands-on learning, cooperative learning, small group instruction, balanced literacy, problem-based inquiry teaching.
