After graduating from Red Hook High School, I attended SUNY Cortland where I received my Bachelors in K-6 Elementary Education and 7-9 English degree. Then I moved south for some warmer weather where I attended the University of Wilmington in North Carolina and received my Masters Degree in Reading K-12. I have 13 years experience teaching in North Carolina with the majority being in second grade. In 2014 my family and I returned to Red Hook. I spent 4 years teaching fourth grade at Seymour Smith. This is my first year at Stissing Mountain teaching ELA and Social Studies.
