My name is Jessica and I am a high school English and Special Education teacher in the Westchester/Lower Hudson area in NY for the past two years. I received my Bachelors in Education at Niagara University in 2010 and my Masters as a Literacy Specialist at Nazareth College in Rochester in 2012. Between family in Rochester, Long Island, Brooklyn, and the Adirondacks, I find myself traveling through the entire state of New York very often keeping up with family events and visits. I love road trips so I don’t mind the driving and I love traveling in general. The farthest I drove this past summer was from Rochester to North Carolina which took about 12 hours. I would love to drive across country over a summer break in the future! This is my second online course in COLT program and so far I am really enjoying my online experience here at SUNY Albany. I see some familiar faces and I am looking forward to working with the news ones!
