Bio

Teaching for me is not a job, it is a passion. From an early age I would conduct class to my dolls and torture my younger brother to be one of my live subjects. Teaching is not a profession in which one can simply be trained, but one must have the innate ability to be able to connect with the youth they are molding.

Teaching for me is not a job, it is a passion. From an early age I would conduct class to my dolls and torture my younger brother to be one of my live subjects. Teaching is not a profession in which one can simply be trained, but one must have the innate ability to be able to connect with the youth they are molding. I attended Rivier College to receive my undergraduate degree in Education and received my masters in Education from Cambridge College. While these degrees state that I am legally qualified to teach the youth of America, my life experiences and overall personality are what gives me the success rate I have with my students.

As a new teacher back in 2002 I was ready to tackle the seemingly impossible task of running my own classroom. I made sure I had the most professional outfit, I had the latest books and technology as my resources but my students did not care about any of that. They were concerned with who I was as a person; was I nice, why did I care about them, could they trust me? I quickly learned that I was not a good teacher because I was trained at the best school or received the highest marks,but because I was compassionate. I truly believe in what I do for my students, I care about the people they will grow to become and I value their role in our community. All the other stuff just falls into place after that. My students ultimately learn because they know I care, which makes them care.

I currently teach 3 sections of Biology to a group of special education students. The main focus of the course is MCAS prep.

I am a certified English teacher. I have taught English for special education students at all grade levels for 13 years. I am well versed in ELA MCAS prep, reading comp, writing, and literature analysis.

I have 13 years teaching experience ranging from Elementary to the high school level. Since my background is special education, I am able to tailor my teaching methods to the individual student. I am also the mom to 4 very energetic boys so I have lots of patience.
