      I grew up in the mountains of New York State. My Bachelors in Science Degree was awarded by the State University of New York. I graduated with co majors: Secondary Social Studies and Elementary Education, with a minor in Reading. I taught two years of 6th grade ELA and Social Studies in a single K-12 building, for the Worcester Central ISD, before moving to Delaware.


      I stayed in Dover, Delaware for 10 years. I accomplished many things in that time. During the first eight years, I worked at Middletown High School. I taught 11th grade AP US History and regular US History, self contained Special Education (core subjects), along with a Special Needs Work Study program. I designed, organized and managed a Title 1 Reading and Math Learning Center. After I earned my Masters Degree, in Educational Leadership, at the University of Delaware, I was hired by the Delaware State Department of Public Instruction as the Lead Administrator of the Education Service Center, Region 2. During this time I was also an Adjunct Professor of Education at Delaware State College and Georgetown Technical and Community College. I began work on my doctorate in Educational Mediation and Law. Two years later, my adventure took me to the Great State of Texas, in the Dallas - Fort Worth area.


     I was blessed to teach in the Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD  for 9 years. In that time span, I taught all core subjects to the self contained 7-8-9 grades. For two years I co taught a 9th grade Science Chemistry/Physic class. My final two years encompassed designing, setting up and managing a Content Mastery Center. I would have loved to continue in this position, however my husband was transferred to Louisville, Kentucky.


     After 10 months in Kentucky, our family was relocated to  the Winston-Salem, North Carolina area. Kernersville was a wonderful place to live: full of interesting places to visit, a wealth of Historical sites, centrally located between the mountains and the Outer Banks, and an outstanding educational / medical environment. I filled my days with Community Volunteer work, private tutoring, and taking care of the needs of my family. It was an honor to be chosen the Piney Grove Elementary Outstanding PTA Volunteer for all of my many hours serving on the PTA Board, managing two Scholastic Book Fairs annually, and working in the classrooms.


     Five years later, it was on to San Antonio, Texas. For three years, I continued my North Carolina way of life, by volunteering, private tutoring, and caring for my family. In 2007 my adventure moved on to Spring Branch Middle School. Currently, I am teaching Resource Math 6, Math 7, and Math 8. It is so exciting to be using my talents to work with such impressive students, parents and staff members.
