I LOVE Social Studies! I graduated from Siena College with a bachelors degree and Pace University with a masters degree.  I started teaching at Greenwood Lake in 1998 and I have also worked in the historic New York State Capitol building.  In search of American history, my family and I have traveled to all 50 States, seeking out cultural differences, seeing historic sites, and trying to gain the best understanding possible of our national foundation and constitutional principles.  I am excited to be teaching American history again this year.  Outside of history, I love being a mom to my sons, Matthew and Brendan.  

History is made everyday.  

I look forward to all of us being a part of it.

I began my career in Early Intervention, teaching mild to severely disabled preschoolers.  To broaden my professional experience, I made the leap to secondary education.  I have since taught both collaborative and self-contained classes here at the Middle School.   

When I am not teaching, I spend time with my family.  We enjoy going to the park, library, and events in our community.
