We are a pair of primary teachers with a wide range of experience! Between the two of us, we have taught kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades! We have experience with general education, special education, ELL, and more!
Our classrooms have a lot of productive noise and activity. We have materials organized to help our students become independent workers. Our classes love to have fun, and get their work done!
I received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science teaching for New York State in 2006. I was able to travel to Washington, D.C. to accept this award and meet President George W. Bush!
I graduated with my degree in Elementary Education from SUNY Geneseo in 1992. I received my certification in Special Education in 1994, and my Master's degree in Elementary Education in 2001.
In addition to teaching, we are both moms of school-age children.
