I am currently a 4th grade ESL classroom teacher in NYC. I love my job and I have a license in literacy as well. I enjoy teaching reading and writing to students helping them develop skills for reading. It is always special to see my students begin to use the English language. I worked in Merrick for 7 years as a leave replacement on various grades and taught all subjects.
I love working in an interactive way in the classroom. I work in small guided reading groups and set up many literacy centers throughout my classroom to keep the students engaged and learning. I focus on grammar to help my students develop the language.

I started my college career at Arizona State Univesity and then graduated with a B.A. in Psychology from Hofstra University. I received my Masters in Elementary Education along with my Literacy and ESL licenses from Hofstra as well. Recently I attained my Administration license.
I have a 5 year old and 2 year old who are my whole world. I love my job and working with ESL students and seeing how much a teacher can influence a student's life. It is amazing.
