This is my 18th year teaching. I am originally from NY where I taught full time for one year and was a substitute for 2 years. I moved to Fayetteville, NC where I taught 5th grade for a year. After leaving Fayetteville, I moved to Burlingtpn, where I taught at Andrews Elementary School for 12 years, teaching 3rd and 4th grades. Last year I taught 4th grade here at South and had a great first year! I am so excited to be teaching 2nd grade this year.
I earned my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from St. Thomas Aquinas College in NY and my master's in Literacy Education at Adelphi University in NY.
Shortly after moving to Burlington, I met my husband and we have a 5 year-old son and a dog (who doesn't know he is a dog!).
Since having my son, I have truly learned that trusting anyone with your child is one of the hardest things that you will ever do as a parent. Thank you for trusting me with your most valuable possession. I promise to treat your child with dignity and respect. I promise to challenge your child and teach him/her how to solve problems. I promise that everyday your child will learn something new. Some days may be more challenging than others, but we will learn, grow and overcome any challenge that we face. I promise to help your child find the confidence to be a leader in the classroom as well as out of the classroom.
This year looks a lot different from other years, but I promise to work closely with you and your child to ensure that we have a great year. I am here if you need anything.
