The Story of Me!


    ONCE UPON A TIME... There was a little girl who always wanted to be a teacher.

    THE STORY BEGAN LONG West Sayville  at Cherry Ave. where I attended K-6.  I went through all of Sayville Schools and was thrilled to be able to teach here after graduating from SUNY @ Oneonta.  I received a MS in Reading Education from Dowling and have more than 75 hours of professional development courses to my credit.

    AND NOW...I am the Enrichment teacher for all of our Elementary Schools. I work with all of the 4th and 5th graders and their teachers. Recently I was a fifth grade teacher at the Lincoln Ave. School.  I began teaching in 1985 in 2nd grade before teaching in Sayville.  At Lincoln Avenue, I started out in 1st Grade for 4 years, then on to Kindergarten for 10. I taught third grade for 8 years and taught 5th grade for 5 years. This is my 32nd year teaching in Sayville!

    YES I HAVE A HANDSOME PRINCE AND A "CASTLE"...My husband and I are West Sayville residents and enjoy raising our 2 daughters in the neighborhood I grew up in.  My older daughter isi a 4th grade teacher in Ablemarle County Virginia! My younger daughter is a Spanish and French teacher in 7th grade in Oneonta Middle School. 

    MY HAPPILY EVER AFTER SCHOOL is spent with friends at the beach, camping with my family, playing with our golden retriever Brodie, gardening or reading a novel.
