TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 19 years. I began my teaching career in 6th grade teaching science and ELA and I am currently a 3rd grade teacher.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is eclectic. I love having the students do fun and exciting projects.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

At this time I have not received any rewards. My only fame is from the students I have taught.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from High School and went to college for Fashion Merchandising. After getting a degree in that I decided that I would like to explore teaching. I went to State University College at Oneonta and received my teaching degree. I began working in the school that I graduated from. It has been fun to return to my roots and work in a district that I know so much about.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a busy mother of two very active and involved boys. I love being in their lives.
