Hello, and welcome to our classroom website! This is my first year working as a reading teacher with students in grades 3-5 at Holland Patent Elementary School. Previously, I taught fourth grade at HPE for twelve years. Before that, I taught computer classes to students in grades K-5 at HPE. I enjoy teaching children, seeing students succeed, and watching them develop a love of learning (especially through the use of technology).
I have lived in New York all of my life...and I love it here! I attended elementary school at Jones school in Utica until 3rd grade. When I was in 4th grade, my family moved to Sauquoit. After graduating from Sauquoit, I attended college at Mohawk Valley Community College and then SUNY Cortland where I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Childhood Education. I continued at SUNY Cortland to receive a Master of Science Degree in Literacy. You can still find me taking classes to learn new things!
I would not be where I am today without my supportive family. When I am not at school, I can usually be found spending time with friends and family, and of course my dog, Blue! I also enjoy traveling (especially to Florida), shopping, reading, swimming (in the summer), and skiing (in the winter).
