Degrees and Certifications:
I graduated from Buffalo State College with my Elementary Education degree in 2000 and then went on to Niagara University to obtain my Master's degree in Inclusive Education in 2003. I later decided to complete coursework at Niagara University to obtain a Literacy Certificate as well as a TESOL Certificate.
I have been teaching in the City of Tonawanda School district for sixteen years!!! I taught many grades (6th, 2nd, 1st, and 3rd) before becoming an Instructional Coach for the school district. I have loved this role as every day is an adventure! During this time I have also taught ENL for four years in our district as well as a college ENL course at Niagara University.
On a personal note, I am married, and have a wonderful daughter Gianna as well as a handsome son Stevie. Both children keep my husband and I very busy!
