Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to First Grade!
I would like to share a little bit about me. This is my twelth year teaching in an inclusion classroom. I graduated from Marist with dual certification in General Education and Students with Disabilities for grades 1-6.
After Marist, I attended SUNY New Paltz for my Masters Degree in Literacy K- Grade 6. During this time I also extended my Students with Disabilities Certification to include Birth - Grade 2.
I have also had the honor of being chosen by Marlboro School District to attend Lesley University where I studied Fountas and Pinnells Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI). Implementing LLI into the inclusion classroom has been successful and I am very pleased with the program and recieve positive feedback from parents and staff. I have also had the honor to recieve Ortan Gillingham Training. Teaching the love of reading is a passion of mine.
This year I have the honor of co-teaching for the 8th year with Mrs. Auchmoody. Mrs. Auchmoody and I work together to ensure every child reaches their maximum potential.
