Degrees and Certifications:
I'm glad you're visiting to my website!
Let me tell you a little about myself!
I graduated from Kean University Cum Laude in 2001. I am certified as a special education teacher, regular education teacher and language arts teacher. I began teaching in 2001 in Woodbridge, NJ as a self contained special education teacher. I was lucky enough to work there for 5 years before coming to Kingwood Township School in 2006. I began at KTS as a special education teacher. I have taught or supported a variety of classrooms in both the elementary and middle school. I have been teaching First Grade since 2013 and I am thrilled to do so.
I am married to my husband, Chris, and we have 3 children. Although we do not live in Kingwood, I use school choice and my children are students at Kingwood School. I truly believe KTS is an amazing place to work and learn.
My philosphy for teaching is simple:
I believe that children thrive when they feel safe and understood. I aim to create an enviroment where each child is honored for their unique self. By providing a predicatable routine, students understand what is expected and feel confident to take risks and are open to learning.
I love my job and am thrilled to be working with your child!
