I have been a teacher at Midland for five years. Before that, I was a pre-kindergarten teacher for four years and a student-teacher for one year. I have my bachelors degree in economics and sociology (from Rutgers University). I also have my masters degree in elementary teaching (from Montclair State University). My goal this year is to create a safe, nurturing, and challenging learning environment for my students so they can develop into independent thinkers and learners. I want learning to be fun and exciting not only for the children, but also for me, as I learn along with my first graders this year.
