I am a currently Certified Elementary Teacher with a Certification Endorsement from the CT Dept. of Education in preschool
through grade 8. I have a 6th year degree from SCSU. I am also Certified by the CT Dept. of Ed. as a Library Media Specialist. I have taught school in elementary education
for over 30 years. Loved every minute of it! The one-to-one experience allows me to meet the individual needs of my students. Each child is different-each teacher must address that difference. I do. I have taught after school for many years, particularly working with students in Reading
to prepare them for the Connecticut Mastery Test. I also have worked with groups of students on many hands-on projects. One project my class worked on was recognized by the National Science
Teachers Association. I flew to St. Louis, MI, to receive the plaque and monetary check. All expenses were paid for by NSTA, and I presented at the convention. Teachers from all over the US who had been recognized were at this convention. I had the opportunity to access resources for my school and attend many lectures. The week was a dream for any teacher. I won the Toyota Tapestry award of $10,000.00 for the unit, "the worms go in and the worms go out"-a unit on the Cycle of Life. I also have a special needs
son; therefore, I am very familiar with inclusion and IDEA. Many of my parents have asked me to give after school workshops for them in the curriculum. I gave multiple parent workshops in order to familiarize the parents with: CT Mastery Test expectations, daily homework schedules, the daily routine for students and current Math
and Science trends. Currently, I work part time for the New Haven Board of Education in the Headstart Program as an Instructional Coach. I would love to work with any parent/student who would like to improve their education and love of learning.

Melissa had always loved Halloween-her favorite time of year! Scary, funny, and SPOOKY! She had just given the last of her candy to the kids in the neighborhood and was exhausted from so much fun. She had spent weeks decorating her house with ghosts, goblins,
and noises in the dark. As she trudged...
