I began my teaching career over 20 years ago in the middle school arena here in Queens, NY. I have also worked within the Catholic school system as well. Along the way I have accumulated a great deal of knowledge about curriculum and its constant desire to change when we just get the hang of the old one. I have seen my share of successes/failures, and even earned some battle wounds. The most fulfilling part of teaching is the continued friendships I have built with fellow staff members and of course my students.
Heartfelt genuine expectations for my students to rise to the challenges I set before them.
Named Whose Who Among America's Teachers twice in my career.
