I am absolutely thrilled to be teaching 2nd Grade at SMI!

I consider myself very fortunate to be part of such a fine school! Prior to teaching 2nd Grade, I taught 3rd through 8th grades over the years here at SMI.

I hold a Master's in Reading from SUNY Albany. I also attended SUNY Plattsburgh, where I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a concentration in English. I hold a permanent NYS certification in elementary education, grades pre-kindergarten through 6.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, writing, music, photography, computers, reading and DIY projects. I also have two extremely loved and spoiled dogs.
