Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 4th Grade! I am both honored and thrilled to be your teacher this year! We are going to have an amazing year of learning together. This will be my first year teaching 4th Grade at Allendale. Previously, I worked as a Math AIS TA for one year. I also spent five years in West Seneca's Universal Pre-Kindergarten program. I am a proud graduate of West Seneca Schools, as I graduated from West Seneca East in 2001. After graduating, I attended Buffalo State College with my Bachelor's degree in Childhood Education 1-6 with a concentration in Social Studies. I am also certified to teach Birth-2nd Grade. I continued on at Buffalo State and obtained my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. On a personal note, I am married and have a 16 month old daughter, Chloe. We also have a 4 year old golden retriever, Jax. They keep me on my toes, and I'm sure you will hear many crazy stories about them through the year! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, hiking, camping and watching the Buffalo Bills! I cannot wait to meet you, and I know we will have a fabulous year in 4th Grade!
Parents, thank you for entrusting me with your child. Please feel free to contact me for any reason throughout the year. My goal is to work collaboratively to ensure a successful and fun school year for all students!
