Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I am so happy to be teaching 3rd Grade! I love to teach ELA - in a prior career I was a story editor, so it's right up my alley! I also love to teach Social Studies - I think learning about other cultures and history are a lot of fun!
I grew up in Utica and attended UFA for high school. I went to Hobart and William Smith for college and studied American history, English and film. I also completed a program at NYU to learn about making movies, got a masters degree in education from the University of New Haven in Connecticut and earned a masters degree in Library Science from Mansfield University in Pennsylvania. Can you tell I love school?!?!?! I believe that continuously learning is an important factor in leading a productive and happy life!
The best thing in my life are my two sons, Frankie & Matt, and our beagle, Penny Lane. I love to spend time with my family cooking, having family game night and visiting Walt Disney World! I also love coffee (I run on Dunkin'!), to read (Barnes & Noble is my 2nd favorite place to visit!), and going to the movies!
I look forward to getting to know each of you, too!
