    My Bio

             My teaching career began immediately after graduating from what is now Rowan University,

    previously Glassboro State College.  I started as a Kindergarten teacher at a private school called Suburban Hills

    in Parsippany, NJ. Right after having my son who is currently 25 years old, I became Director of Education at 

    Suburban Hills School in West Orange, NJ. I was in charge of the year round nursery and kindergarten school programs,

    as well as, summer camp (Pre-K – grade 3) with 200 families. My responsibilities included hiring staff, lifeguards, holding

    staff meetings, planning our weekly themed activities and arranging special programs for our calendar. Following 18 years

    in the private setting, I came to Haworth Public School as an instructional aide in first grade, when Mrs. DiCarlo went on

    maternity leave. Since 1999, I have been teaching here in various capacities depending on student needs and numbers.

    I have taught several years in Kindergarten, technology and second grade. I became technology teacher once again

    when our primary lab first opened in 2014. After teaching second grade last year,  I'm returning to the computer lab to

    teach computer to Kindergarten through 4th grade students, and continue to work with students on their basic skills (BSI).

    Both of my children are graduates of Montclair State University, my daughter, age 30, is a Speech & Language 

    Pathologist for preschool aged children and my son has moved to Boston.
