Full-time 8th Grade Language Arts Teacher, Part Time Aspiring Superhero

All students can be deep readers and reflective writers. They need the tools to do so and I strive to give students these tools each day. I received my Masters in Teaching English through the University of New Hampshire and am currently working towards my Supervisory Certificate through New Jersey City University. I served as a Master Teacher through the NEA and Betterlesson Master Teacher Project. Previously, I wrote for and The Bergen Record through my column titled Raise Your Hand. In addition, I have served as an instructional coach, mentor, and have ran various workshop within our district. I am a huge book lover and am constantly reading.
