All About Me

I am a native of New Jersey but have lived in Cheshire, CT for thirty-three years.  I have three children, 2 daughters and 1 step son.  I love to spend time with my family and going to new places with my husband.  My family and friends are my greatest accomplishment.  
I started my teaching career 30 years ago after graduating from Lesley University in Cambridge, MA.  I received my Master's Degree and Sixth Year Degree from Southern Connecticut State University.  I began teaching in North Haven in 1986 at Green Acres School as a K/1 Integrated Day teacher.  I was chosen as CT Teacher of the Year in 2000 while teaching at Green Acres. This is my 11th year teaching at Ridge Road.  I have taught first grade, second grade, K/1 Integrated Day and currently Contemporary Kindergarten at Ridge Road.
