About Jane


Bio

I absolutely love working with students. I believe each student is unique. Every child learns in a different way, and I try my hardest to have them succeed in their own learning way.

I'm currently a certified special education (K-12), certified regular elementary education(K-6) and certified deaf/hard of hearing preK-12 in CT. I also hold MD and NY certifications in elementary education and special education. I have been a teacher in MD and currently in CT. I earned my undergraduate degree in Elementary/Special Education at St. Bonaventure University. There I also worked on my minor in History. I earned my Masters degree in Deaf Education from Gallaudet University (Washington, DC). I am fluent in American Sign Language.

I'm currently in my 10th year of teaching.
