I am excited to start my 11th year of teaching! In the past, I have worked as a 1st grade, 4th grade, and 3rd grade teacher, as well as a Reading Specialist. I have lived and worked in New York City, Florida, and New Jersey.
I received my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Penn State University. Shortly after graduating, I enrolled in the New York City Teaching Fellows program (NYCTF), where I began my exciting journey as an elementary school teacher. I received my Master's Degree in Education from Fordham University and my Master's Degree in Literacy from Hunter College.
I love watching my students grow and learn each day. I believe that all children can and will learn. I am committed to learning, growing professionally, and implementing current research and practice.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband (Ryan) and daughter (Chelsea). I love traveling, listening to music, and most importantly...reading! I am an avid reader and make time to read every single day.
I am thrilled to be joining the Allen W. Roberts family this year as one of the Reading Specialists!
