It's hard to believe that this is my 17th year of teaching 3rd grade at LBCRS! I am looking forward to another great year. I received my bachelor's degree in elementary and special education from St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia. I continued my education at St. John's University where I received a master's degree in special education. During the year after college I volunteered full time with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps at a men's homeless shelter in Hartford, Connecticut. Since then I have continued taking classes and try to stay up to date and learn new ways of teaching.
I have had so many great experiences both inside and outside the classroom at LBCRS and feel blessed to be part of this community. Over the years I have enjoyed watching the excitement of the third graders as they created and presented projects in the classroom throughout the year. I have also loved the many field trips we have taken. The enthusiasm is palpable in the classroom in the spring time as the children compete in Multiplication March Madness and present their own work at our poetry readings. I have also enjoyed attending extracurricular activities and seeing my former students growing and sharing their talents and having fun together.
Last September I started the best job I've ever had when my baby Brian was born. He is a singer, a dancer, a swimmer, a reader, and the happiest boy around! Lucky me! Fortunately, he inherited my love for the beach, the boardwalk, spending time with friends and family, and hanging out outside. So, though there's usually a stroller and Cheerios in tow, we are still enjoying town and hope to see many of you around!
