I have a Bachelors in Elementary Education and Mathematics from SUNY Potsdam and a Masters degree in Educational Leadership from Central Connecticut State University. I have had the great pleasure of teaching intermediate grades for over 10 years. Each year my new group of students and I create a safe, caring, and fun place to learn in our classroom. I expect my students to work hard and do their personal best every day, as I do for them. We work on many projects throughout the year which allow the students to connect the subject matter to their personal life experiences. I incorporate the students' interests into my lessons, tailoring my lessons to the personality of the group. My love of football even permeates the class from math lessons to reading stories. My greatest accomplishment has been my nominations for ISSL Teacher of Distinction as well as Disney Teacher of the Year in 2004. When I am not teaching, I enjoy traveling with my husband to places like Chicago and Myrtle Beach. I also enjoy being a fabulous aunt to my two young nieces.
