I have been teaching at the same middle school for seventeen years. I have taught Math, Science, Social Studies, but have spent the majority of my teaching years in the ELA department.
I try to be easy going and fun, but I do require my students to be respectful, prepared and hard workers.
I have been nominated for the Big Apple Teacher awards for two years in a row.
I have an undergraduate degree in child study from St. Joseph's College in Long Island, New York and a graduate degree in special education from Touro College in New York City. I am certified to teach general education grades K-6 and special education from birth to age 21.
I live in Manhattan, New York with my dog, Max. I'm busy teaching and planning my summer 2016 wedding.
