I have been teaching elementary school for 20 years. I began my teaching career in Orange at Peck
Place School, where I taught 5th grade for six years. In 2003, I had the pleasure of joining the new
staff at our beautiful new Frenchtown School. I began my tenure here teaching 3rd grade. The
following year, I "looped" up with my class and taught 4th grade. I remained in that grade for ten
I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to teach 5th grade again this year. I am working with an
amazing fifth grade team, and I am looking forward to another exciting and challenging academic
experience with my next class.
I am happily married to my husband (Steve), and have one grown son (Stephen) who is 29 years old
and lives in Los Angeles, California. I have many passions (outside of my teaching career) which
include: spending time with my loving family and my adorable Chihuahua DIVA, singing, theater,
yoga, cooking, baking, reading, and traveling.
I believe that every child brings a unique set of academic skills and social abilities to fifth grade.
These qualities will be enriched, refined and enhanced through an effective home-school partnership.
This year, parents will work closely with me to take an active, responsible role in their child's
educational process. Together we will do all that we can to inspire, encourage and challenge our
children to grow - both academically and socially in a safe, nurturing environment of mutual and self
