Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY (English - BA)
Utica College of Syracuse University (Master's)
Continuing education (Graduate Coursework)
I have a Masters from Utica College of Syracuse University and a BA in English from Hofstra University. I am a professional educator with more than ten years of experience, holding dual certification in English and Students with Disabilities at the high school level. I have taught English 9, 10 and 11 Common Core and Integrated Co-Teaching as well as Resource. I have also taught SAT review classes at the Community College and have provided ACT Test Preparation Support.
I have been designated as a Master Teacher and have been identified as Teacher of the Month. It is important to me to help students develop a sense of comfort with their skills and to help them recognize that they can accomplish each assigned task with confidence. As a former professional journalist, I can provide extensive support for reading and writing skills across the curriculum. My objective is to assist students with specific class work or test preparation, but in the process help students fine tune the critical thinking, problem solving, close reading, and self-expressive tools needed for continued academic progress.
I thrive on working with students to help each individual develop a skill set that makes them Career and College Ready. It is important to me that students understand the purpose for certain tasks and that I make these tasks manageable for everyone. It is also important to me that students are able to reach their greatest potential, so building a sense of confidence in my students is my highest priority. I truly enjoy helping young people believe in themselves and demonstrate their confidence through meaningful reading and effective writing activities.
I am eager to work with students of all ability levels and have the opportunity to turn the learning process into a life-long love of learning.
