I graduated with a BA from Montclair State University with a degree in Elementary Education. Two years after graduating, I returned to MSU to complete a MA in Reading. Along with the degree, I also earned Reading Specialist certification.
After student teaching at Lincoln School, I worked as a substitute teacher in the district and as a school librarian at Wilson School. In December 2008, I returned to Lincoln School to teach second grade. I taught second grade for six years before moving up to third grade. This is my fourth year teaching third grade.
I enjoy teaching children in various settings. In fact I spent the summer of 2008, 2009, and 2010 working at a residential school for boys with emotional, behavioral, and learning difficulties. I spent four summers teaching the Gifted and Talented Program at Montclair State University.
I also love to learn! I continue learning new ideas and information by attending various workshops. Some of these educational courses include: Web Design, Using Distance Learning to Enhance the Curriculum, Creativity in the Classroom, Creating Pop-Up Books, and Improving Writing with Technology.
