I am currently working on a Doctorate in Educational Leadership. I received my Master's degree in Curriculum Development and Instructional Strategies from the University of Phoenix. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Childhood and Special Education from the State University of New York College at Geneseo.
I have 10 years of professional experience working with students with special needs. Before coming to Silver Lake, I was employed in a private special education school named Mary Cariola Children's Center, which is located in Rochester N.Y. Prior to working there I worked for other private agencies that assist individuals with special needs.
At the end of the 2012-2013 school year I worked as a long-term substitute here at Silver Lake, and this is my fifth full year teaching at this school. I am beyond excited to have this opportunity to work with such amazing and talented students! I look forward to seeing a few familiar faces, but also being able to make many new friends!
Hobbies and Interests:
FOOTBALL AND BASEBALL!!! I moved to the great state of Texas from New York, so I am a true blue NY Giants and Yankees fan! My family and friends mean the world to me, so when I am not here at school I try to spend as much time with them as possible! I'm Italian so I LOVE to cook and bake, and make a mean pot of red sauce (or as it is called in my family "gravy"). You can also find me reading, watching movies, or doing yoga. I love to travel and enjoy just getting away for a weekend as often as possible. My family is located all around the country so there are lots of destinations for me to hit!
Philosophy of Education:
My teaching experience has been geared toward empowering ALL children to learn and succeed. Every student regardless of race, gender, socio-economic or disability status has the potential to make a tremendous mark on this world. I believe that it is my job to create a safe, nurturing environment in which young minds can grow into responsible, independent and successful individuals."Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."-Dr. Seuss, The Lorax
