All About Me
I grew up in the town of Westwood and lived there until I was married. I attended Brookside Elementary and am a Westwood High School Alumni. When it was time to go to college I decided that the field of communications was my path. I graduated from Marist Collage with a BA in communications/public relations.
It was not until five years later that I decided that I wanted to become a teacher. I graduated from St. Peter's College with a certification and MA in elementary education. One of the requirements of a teacher certification program is to do student teaching. I did my student teaching at Jessie F. George School. I also was a substitute teacher in the WWRSD during my studies at St. Peter's.
After I graduated St. Peter's, I was hired at Leonia Middle School as a permanent substitute teacher. Not only did I work with the general ed students, but I also was able to teach special ed/autism students. I gained a wealth of knowledge and experience from that position.
After that, I was hired as a teacher at Our Lady of Mercy Academy in Park Ridge. I taught middle school for one year at OLMA and then requested to be moved to a position that was within my certification. To my wonderful surprise, I was moved to Kindergarten! This will be my 13th year teaching Kindergarten and I absolutely LOVE it.
I am very passionate about teaching. I love seeing the faces of my students light up when they realize that they can read, or when they accomplish a challenging task, or when they learn something they think is, "so cool". I am looking forward to teaching your child and I look forward to getting to know you as well. I believe that communication between parent and teacher is a key component in helping your child become the best that he/she can be. Please do not hesitate to contact me via note, email, or phone call. Here's to a wonderful year!
