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.PARENTS: Please note that class happenings (i.e. class work, homework, projects, tests, and related documents) will be posted on your child's class website link located to the left, and is more reliable (in my case) than Infinite Campus. This was expressed to the students on the first day of school and will be emphasized at Back to School Night.
