Degrees and Certifications:
I have enjoyed teaching for 30+ years! I have taught all grades from 2 - 6, as well as spending 13 years as an Early Intervention Program teacher. In New York, my home state, I earned my Bachelor's degree from Potsdam College with a double major in Psychology and Elementary Education with an Early Childhood Specialization. I also earned my Master's of Education degree from State University of New York at Albany in Teaching Developmental Reading.
I have a love for traveling and have lived in New York, England, California, Utah, Florida and now Georgia. My teenage son Benjamin and I have a love for all things Star Wars. It's not just a classroom theme, it's a way of life for us! We love to attend Star Wars Celebration, visit Disney's Hollywood Studios, watch the Dragon Con parade, and dabble in various Star Wars tabletop games. We even have affectionately named our four cats with Star Wars related names: Obi-Wan, Jango, Padme, and Naboo!
