I am originally from Long Island, NY (proudly representing Ronkonkoma, Exit 59 on the L.I.E) and graduated with my degree in English/Secondary Education in 1992 from St. Joseph’s College. Life took me on a southern journey, teaching in Georgia and North Carolina before moving to Virginia. I lived in Newport News, and earned my Gifted Endorsement from The College of William & Mary in 2007, and my Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction from Averett University in 2008. I moved to NOVA in 2010, and live in Alexandria.
My favorite thing to do when I’m not teaching is hanging out with my dog, Mika. She is a Dogue de Bordeaux, (otherwise known as a French Mastiff), and is a giant 112 lb bundle of love. She is very gentle and loves to be petted, especially when watching tv on the couch. She even graduated from a training program, and she is a Certified Emotional Therapy Dog and a Canine Good Citizen. If you stop by my room, you can see her graduation picture with her cap on!
