I love sports. My favorite teams are the Michigan Wolverines and the Yankees. I like to travel, and my favorite places to visit are Alaska, Hawaii, Colorado, and Long Beach Island. I enjoy running, hiking, playing hoops, and doing anything outdoors. When I was in middle school, I loved lunch, making new friends, and dodgeball (but I don't think you're allowed to play that in gym anymore).
Growing up, I played baseball, basketball, and soccer at Westfield High School. I went on to earn my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology at the University of Michigan. In 1997, I visited the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA, to watch Michigan win the college football national championship. After graduation, I taught 5th, 4th, 3rd, and 2nd grades in Elizabeth, NJ, for 3 years. Then, I landed at GCMS. In May 2009, I completed my Master's Degree in Educational Administration at Montclair State University.
