I couldn't be more excited to start my 7th year at Westwood High School, beginning a new adventure. I received both my undergraduate as well as my MBA degrees from Ramapo College of New Jersey during my time at RCNJ I worked for RCNJ athletic program. After graduation, I worked in the business world for over 15 years developing product lines for Tommy Hilfiger, Movado, and Russ Berrie. I then transitioned into education, truly the best decision I ever made. For the past 7 years I have been teaching accounting, marketing & financial literacy, this year I made the exciting transition into the guidance department, starting the SLE/ work study program. I look forward to helping the students become career ready.
What is SLE?
SLE is designed for for high school seniors who have selected their career path and would like to gain first hand experience or a students who wished to learn more about a specific area.
SLE are supervised and designed to provide students with exposure to the requirements and responsibility of a specific job.
SLE include, but are not limited to: apprenticeships, internships, job shadowing, cooperative education, school-based enterprises, & volunteer activities.
SLE offers seniors a chance to go beyond the formal education of the classroom. Students will have the opportunity to explore a career through a quality internship in an area that fits their interests, and abilities. Students will work with mentors in an exciting, highly-structured, well-monitored setting. SLE provides adult challenges, role models, and individualized learning to prepare students for the professional work environment
