This is my 8th year teaching at Charter Oak. This is my first year teaching 2nd grade at Charter Oak. For the past 7 years I taught 5th grade. Prior to that I spent my time teaching in Brockton, Massachusetts. I was a grade 1-3 special education teacher, taught grade 3, grade 4 inclusion, and grade 4 Talented and Gifted. I’ve had a lot of variety in my career.
I have certification in elementary and special education. I attended the University of Hartford where I received a Bachelor's degree in Education. Several years later, I got my Master's degree in Instructional Technology from Bridgewater State College.
I have two young boys at home who keep me very busy! They are full of energy and love to play with trucks, paint, swim, go to any park, and blow giant bubbles. When I get some free time, I love to read, cook, shop, travel, and listen to all sorts of music.
I look forward to sharing my love of reading with my class!
The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, and all the sweet serenity of books.
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
