I am so happy to be a part of the CLV team and teaching 6th grade math! I live in East Otto with my 3 kids and husband. We also have dogs, cats, turtles and goats. I love being outdoors relaxing on my porch or by the pool. My kids are involved in a lot of sports and I also coach competitive cheer and soccer.
I grew up in Westfield NY and was a graduate of Westfield Academy and Central Schools. I attended SUNY Fredonia and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Legal Studies. I was in the Air Force Reserve from 2006-2017 as an Airplane Mechanic then retrained into Education and Training Manager. I was deployed in 2010 and during that time did an online program to receive a Master of Arts in Homeland Security.
In 2015 after substitute teaching for years I decided to pursue my passion of teaching students. I graduated from Canisius College with a Masters of Science in Childhood Education and Special Education. I was a long term Special Education Teacher for 6 months then taught at my hometown school as a 6th grade ELA teacher. When my family and I moved to East Otto I worked for 2 years as an Elementary Special Education Teacher. I am happy to be here at CLV back in Middle School.
I love integrating technology into the classroom and meeting the students at their levels. I am very student driven when it comes to my instruction and pace. We will use E-Math instruction which follows the NYS Next Generation Learning Standards for math. I looke forward to a great year!
