My goal as a teacher is to prepare every student for success in their future as a responsible citizen by guaranteeing equity and access to meaningful learning activities relevant to the 21st Century.
I will provide a safe and caring environment in the classroom where each student will grow and succeed. In collaboration with parents, I will promote an academic, social, emotional and personal success of all students in my classroom.
I believe that each student has an unique background and cultural perspective that needs to be cultivated. I will provide learning experiences for my students in ways that address their unique learning styles.
I went to King’s College in Wilkes-Barre, PA where I received my bachelor’s degree in English & Education. I have continued my love for learning by taking three classes in Sign Language.
I have taught adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. I also did a year of service through AmeriCorps where I worked with ESL high school students who needed to learn how to read and write.
Before that I was a long term substitute teacher and a day to day substitute teacher for three years. I also have experience tutoring reading, writing, study skills, and SAT Verbal.
I was involved with the theater group at my college as well as the literary magazine. I have helped with a number of theater productions for the schools that I have worked for, including “Little Shop of Horrors”, “Tales of Beatrix Potter” and “Fiddler on the Roof JR”.
