I believe students need to be taught on their instructional level utilizing their prior knowledge and experiences. I believe students learn best by an interactive meaning based approach focused on higher level thought. I believe students must be taught in a creative, fun and individualized manner in order to instill and maintain a love for learning. I believe a child’s learning style is important to discern to aid instruction.
I received a Bachelor of Arts from Lehigh University in Sociology/Social Psychology coupled with elementary education coursework. I received my Masters of Science Degree in Elementary Education with both Elementary and Reading Specialist Certification.
I completed my student teaching in first grade. I taught in nonpublic schools for the Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit as a Reading Specialist. I taught in the Bethlehem Area School District as a Reading Specialist.
I enjoy reading by myself and with my three children. I enjoy creating art projects and crafts with my daughter.I enjoy going to plays and Broadway Musicals. I like to exercise, especially swimming and bike riding with my children. I enjoy watching my children’s soccer games and tennis matches. My favorite vacation destination is always going to the beach!
