Hello and welcome to my web site. I have been teaching fifth grade for the last fourteen years and currently teach fifth grade AIG students. A native of New Jersey, I attended Montclair State University where I graduated in 1981 with a teaching degree in Business Education. In 2006, I received my Elementary License from Salem College. My AIG Licensure was completed through Elon University in 2013. I have a genuine love for teaching and a passion to help students reach their full academic potential. My mission is to prepare students both academically and socially for middle school. In doing so, I lead a structured, yet fun learning environment. I hold high expectations for my students, leading them to become independent and successful students.
