TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching special education to middle school students for eleven years. Prior to that, I had experience with elementary school students - general and special education. While my caseload changes every year, I have taught mostly reading and science classes. I do have some social studies experience as well. Currently, I also serve as a building union representative and a Technology Integration Lead Teacher.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love mixing it up. In a middle school environment, it is necessary to sometimes need to lecture but I try to always include a hands-on experience or some form of technology in each lesson to keep their motivation high. Excited, motivated, engaged students will only make me more excited and motivated to be a better teacher.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I received my bachelor's degree from St. Joseph's College in elementary (K- Grade 6) and special education (Birth to Grade 12). I received my masters degree from Long Island University in Literacy K-6. Beyond that, I have obtained 90 credits beyond my masters in a variety of different courses to help me further excel in the area of literacy, science, social studies, and technology.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Along with my love of teaching comes my love for my pitbull pup, Samson. He is a delight to me and my students. In my spare time, I enjoy painting and kickboxing.
