This year I am celebrating my 20th year at LBCRS. I feel fortunate to have taught at such a fine school surrounded by two of my favorite things - children and books! I graduated SUNY Oneonta with a BS in Elementary Education and a minor in English. I taught for 4 years in the Deer Park public schools as a classroom teacher. Over the years, besides teaching library, I have enjoyed offering camps and clubs for the children and being a faculty advisor for the school newspaper. My husband Vic and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary on August 22nd and we have a son Thomas. Thomas received his PHD in astrophysics and astronomy from UCLA in June 2016 and is a research astronomer at the University of California at Berkeley. Thomas and his fiance Katie are engaged and have set a wedding date for September 24, 2017 in Berkeley, CA.
