I have been a teacher at APW Central School District since 1988. Teaching is my passion. I am dually certifed in special education and elementary education. I received my Bachelor's degree from Daemen College and my Master's degree from Syracuse University. My entire career has been devoted to the students of APW. I have worked in special education as well as kindergarten, first grade, second grade and currently prekindergarten. I absolutely love my job. I believe all children can learn and I believe that this is best achieved when parents are part of my team. Parents are welcome in my class to volunteer, read a story or just join us for lunch. I embrace open communication and encourage parents to contact me with any questions or concerns. The foundation developed in prekindergarten is important because it is the beginning of a child's education.
