    My Bio

            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 special programs for our 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 went on 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 years, as well as second grade.

          TECH TEACHER:  Initially I taught K - 6th grades in the old tech lab. 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 4th

    grade while continuing to work on basic skills (BSI.) I'll be returning to teaching 2nd grade for 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 has moved to Boston.
