Hello P.S.214 Family! It is a pleasure being a part of our school community and I have been fortunate enough to be here for several years. Becoming a life-long learner is of the utmost importance. I believe the classroom environment needs provide a safe, child centered place where children can be curious, learn, grow and have some fun! Creating an atmosphere that fosters cooperation and encouragement for others and respect for the many different talents, strengths and learning styles each of us have is important. Through a rigorous, hands on curriculum with high standards and expectations for all, students will be challenged, supported and will learn more autonomy to prepare them for the future. Working together we can accomplish our class and individual goals!

Third grade is an exciting school year and I look forward to working with, growing with and getting to know the students. They have such distinct personalities, ideas and strengths at this age. It is an awesome experience to see the growth and changes that occur from September to June. Together, we can make this a challenging, fun and memorable year!
