Degrees and Certifications:
I have an amazing family that are very supportive of the work I do. My husband Everett and I have been married for 21 years and have 3 wonderful daughters, two whom attend Holland Patent Schools . Paige, who loves to play the piano and soccer, is in 11th grade and Makenzie is into a little bit of everything, is 12 years old and in 7th grade. Our oldest daughter, Carlie, is 18 years old and just started her first year at SUNY Geneseo studying Biology with a PreMed track. In our spare time, we like to travel (especially to Disney), spend time at our camp in the 1000 Islands, watch our daughters play sports and just being together with our family. We have two French Bulldogs named Carmella and Nala and two cats named Princess and Zoe.
A little bit about me: I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from SUNY Oneonta and a Master's Degree from SUNY Cortland. I taught first grade at HPE for one year in 1996 and fourth grade for 3 years in the Utica City School District before taking a leave of absence to raise my children. In 2009 I began teaching again, taking several long term positions with Holland Patent and Remsen School Districts. I became a full-time teacher in January 2014 teaching 5th grade at GWF.
