Degrees and Certifications:
I grew up in Queens, NY and Port Washington, Long Island NY. I went to SUNY Oswego and studied Elementary Education with a minor in psychology. I moved to Florida. I substitute taught and worked at a private school in Kindergarten. I took a slight detour and worked in the financial and marketing world. My passion is always education so I went back to substituting from K-5. I have 2 amazing children who are my pride and joy. Ashley, 17 is a senior at Wakefield High School and Chase, 13 is in 8th grade at Wakefield Middle School. I also have a golden retriever named Brody.
