Degrees and Certifications:
I am beginning my 16th year as a Special Education teacher here at Hillside. My teaching carreer began in the South Bronx working with special needs children from Pre-K to 1st grade.
I learned from that experience that children are children no matter what their socio-economic backgrounds are. It was a priveledge for me to have had that experience. I came to Hillside
in 2001 as the ILC (Integrated Learning Center) teacher. Over the past 15 years, I have worked in the Integrated Co-Teaching classrooms in third and fourth grade. I am excited to be
back in third grade after 2 years in fourth.
On a personal note, I am the mother of five children ages 36, 35, 33, 30, and 24. Yes, they do grow up! My children have blessed me with six beautiful grandchildren ages
6,5,4,3,2,almost 1. My husband Mike and I love to garden and kayak. We also enjoy our trips to Vermont.
