I was born and raised in Long Island, New York. I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in General and Special Education from St. Joseph’s College. I continued my studies at Long Island University and earned a Master’s degree in Literacy Education. My husband and I moved to Vail, Arizona eight years ago. I have four little boys who are nine, six, three, and nine months.
I am really excited to be part of the Sycamore team. This will be my fourth year at Sycamore, and ninth year in Vail. Before moving to Vail, I worked as a Special Education teacher for three years in an elementary school on Long Island.
My classroom goals are to meet the needs of all my learners, for my students to feel supported, and for my students to know that it is ok to take risks. I believe that every child has the ability to achieve their dreams. Through team work, collaboration, and hard work, anything is possible.
When I am not teaching, I am having fun with my boys. We are a big sports family. We love the zoo, and just going out and having fun together. They sure keep me busy!
I look forward to an exciting year full of learning and fun.
