I am very excited to begin my 11th year teaching at St. Agnes! Since I was a little girl, I always wanted to be a teacher and help children learn and grow in their faith. I attended St. Gregory’s Elementary School in Bellerose and Sacred Heart Academy High School. For college, I attended Adelphi University, where I received both my bachelor’s and master’s degree.
My faith is very important to me. Over the years, I have been involved in many Church activities, such as being an altar server, lector, and Eucharistic minister. I was also the director of the summer Vacation Bible School Program at St. Gregory’s.
I love watching my students grow in their faith, as well as watching them further develop their reading, writing, and math skills. There is nothing more rewarding than watching children get excited about learning and working hard to achieve a goal. Most importantly, I want students to feel they are part of a classroom family, where everyone is treated with respect and friendships are formed and nurtured.
When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my husband, Mike, our families, friends, going out to eat, the beach, the movies, and exploring new places. I look forward to a wonderful year with all of you!
