EARLY NEWS: 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. Following my son's birth who's 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 trips and special programs for our monthly calendar.
STARTING in HAWORTH: Following 18 years in the private setting, I came to Haworth Public School as an instructional aide
in first grade, when Mrs. DiCarlo took her first maternity leave. Since 1999, I have been teaching here in various capacities
depending on student needs and numbers. I have taught Kindergarten for 7 years, as well as second grade.
TECH TEACHER: I taught K - 6th grades in the old tech lab then when our brand new primary lab first opened in 2014,
I worked with grades K - 3. After teaching second grade 2018-19, I returned to the computer lab to teach Kindergarten
through 4thgrade while continuing to work on basic skills instruction (BSI.) I'll be returning to teaching 2nd grade
for the school year 2019 - 2020.
Family Background: Both of my children are graduates of Montclair State University, my daughter is a Speech & Language
Pathologist for preschool children, and my son is currently living in Boston.
