It's hard to believe that 2019-2020 is the start of my 33rd year teaching...Wow!!
I've had the pleasure of teaching 31 years in Hazlet! Prior to working in Hazlet, I taught in the private sector.
I have a bachelor's degree with dual certification in Elementary Education K-8,
and Teacher of the Handicapped K-12, from Seton Hall University. I have also earned a Master's degree in Behavioral Science from Kean University.
I absolutely love teaching and I have a love for learning! Believing is Achieving! All you have to do is to believe in yourself and all good things will come your way!
I was lucky enough to grow up in the great town of Hazlet, and to have graduated from Raritan High! Go ROCKETS! Hazlet was, and still is, a wonderful little town where everyone knows each other. I have so many great memories of my childhood here. Although I don't live here anymore, my heart remains here...it will always be my "home."
