Degrees and Certifications:
I am originally from New York, but after living in Raleigh for 21 years, I consider myself a North Carolinian. This has not changed my love for a good slice of pizza 😊
This is my 8th year at Centennial Middle school, all of them being in the Special Education Department. It is so wonderful because I get to work with smaller groups of students and really get to know them. This allows me to be a better advocate for them in the classroom. We have the best Special Programs team!
When I am not at school, I like spending time with my husband, sons, and dog. My 18 year old son, Shawn, is a senior at Vernon Malone College and Career Academy. We are starting the journey to college...yikes! My 6 year old, Julian, is a first grader at Partnership Elementary. We loved our first year there and had a great experience. My husband worked for Scholastic Books, so we have A LOT of books at home. You will find many books in my classroom, too. As a family, we like to explore places in and around Raleigh, visit family in NY and FL, cook new dishes, and just hang out together having fun.
I look forward to working with you and hope to be an additional resource to ensure a successful school year for both you and your child.
