All About Me

I think I knew I wanted to be a teacher all my life. As a child, I remember setting stuffed animals in little desks and teaching them the day's lesson. Eventually those animals turned into friends and a childish dream became a career aspiration.

I have been teaching Spanish for 7 years and am in my 2nd year at a public school. Though I miss the cozy feeling of a private school, I am excited for this new adventure.

I am about half way through the CDIT program at the University of Albany. I love how I am growing as an educator and how this program is giving me the tools to put my student's learning first, above all else.
