About me: I earned my undergraduate degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Law from SUNY Binghamton in 1998. After 2.5 years working in the NYC school system as a paraprofessional (teacher assistant special education) getting my teaching license, I spent 3 years teaching at Liberty Academy (middle school) in Jersey City, NJ. This was followed by 2 years at David E. Owens Middle School in New Milford, NJ, and one year at J.P. Case Middle School in Flemington, NJ. I was finally able to begin teaching at the high school level in December of 2006 when I began teaching at Warren Hills.
I earned my M.A. in American Studies at Lehigh University in January 2014.
