    My Education:

    I graduated from Syracuse University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Inclusive Elementary Education and Special Education. I went on to get my Masters in Curriculum and Teaching at Fitchburg University. Every piece of my educational path has helped mold the person and the teacher I am today. I learned from some of the very best educators, and I constantly try to put into action the things they taught me.

    Teaching Life:

    This is my 11th year of teaching. I have spent the first 10 years teaching in Haverhill, MA. Eight years as a middle school math teacher and the past two years as an elementary school math coach.  Teaching is not just my job; it’s my hobby and my calling! I can’t imagine being so fulfilled in any other profession. I am so excited for this year and cannot wait for the first day of school!

    Accomplisments:

    I won the Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching in 2016.  This is the highest recognition that a kindergarten through 12th-grade mathematics or science teacher may receive for outstanding teaching in the United States.
