I always tell people that I have the most rewarding career because I am a teacher.  I enjoy teaching and watching children blossom as readers and become stronger in their understanding of math concepts.  I love to see the look on a child's face when they realize that they accomplished their learning goals.  My teaching philosophy centers on creating an environment where all students can be successful.  I also believe that learning is a partnership between the teacher, child, and their parents.  I offer opportunities for parents to support their child's growth, and welcome parents to contact me if they have any questions or concerns. 
Teaching is a second career for me.  I earned my BS in Accounting from Canisius College and worked as a CPA in the accounting field for eight years.  After being at home with my children for a number of years I returned to college and earned my MS at Canisius College in Elementary Education and Reading.  My first year of teaching was in the Lancaster School District as a kindergarten teacher.  The following year I began teaching math and reading in the Learning Center at Como Park.
