A little bit about me...

After graduating with honors in 1997 from the State University of New York College at Fredonia, I began my teaching career in Sarasota County. I received a Master's degree in Exceptional Student Education from Nova Southeastern University in 2001.

As an Exceptional Student Education teacher, I am student-centered in order to focus on, and enhance, the individual strengths and capacities of each student. My belief is that a child's learning environment should be one where the child feels safe enough to take risks and challenge him or herself. I feel that the learning environment must also be nurturing in all areas, not just academics, to provide the opportunity for the child to grow and learn from valuable experiences. The curriculum within my classroom consists of a variety of teaching techniques in order to enhance the strengths of each student. My students are given the opportunity to participate in many authentic experiences, which promote creativity, self-confidence, and socialization. I set expectations for each child high, but not unrealistic, in order for each child to experience success and achieve to his or her maximum potential.

In a time where positive role models are scarce, it is extremely important to me that my students look up to me for all of my successes, and be able to find comfort, support, and encouragement within me. I am a caring teacher who is devoted to the learning and success of all of my students. I strive to ensure that each student has an enjoyable and successful experience in the classroom. My hope is that the success achieved can be carried with each child in other experiences, and throughout their lives. I have a passion and commitment for teaching and would like to pass on to my students that same passion and commitment for learning.
