Degrees and Certifications:
I am thrilled to be teaching Third Grade and to have your child in my class! I have been teaching for 12 years with the majority of my experience being with third graders. After receiving my Bachelor Degree in Spanish and being certified in Elementary Education from Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA, I taught second grade at a Navy base in Norfolk VA for a year. I then continued on to teach third grade for 2 years outside of Atlanta, GA before missing my northern roots and deciding to return to the Northeast. I have spent the rest of my career here in New Hartford, mostly teaching third grade!
My five year old triplets are a huge part of my life and I am enjoying the challenge this year of wearing both the teacher and the mommy hats as they are just beginning Kindergarten. We enjoy the outdoors together as well as reading books and just generally spending time together as a family. In my (limited!) free time, I love reading historical fiction, taking long walks outdoors, as well as watching a good movie! In spite of my busy family life, I am grateful for the opportunity to work with your children and I am looking forward to a productive and exciting year of learning!
