Prior to entering the field of education, I was part of the management team at Borders Bookstore for 10 years in Rochester, New York and Thousand Oaks, California. I switched my career in order to pursue my passion for learning. I love reading, writing, and painting. I have attached pictures of some of my work on this page.

I understand the complex obstacles that students face. As a result, I am committed to guide students on how to overcome their own struggles and pursue their dreams. I am confident that my enthusiasm, ability to motivate, and persistence in implementing high academic rigor will help students achieve their goals.

I create and enforce a safe and respectful classroom environment. This gives all students the confidence to participate freely without fear of humiliation or ridicule. I create engaging lessons, many of which are constructed to promote higher-level thinking and to encourage collaborative learning. All lessons strictly adhere to the Common Core Standards. In turn, students gain valuable knowledge in reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your determination to learn in allowing me the opportunity to teach you, the student, and your parents/guardian for trusting me to teach your child.
