    ABOUT THE TEACHER:  Thank you for taking the time to visit my webpage.  This is my eighth year teaching and second year in the Clarence Central School District.  I am overjoyed to be teaching KINDERGARTEN this year! 
    Over the past eight years, I have taught kindergarten, second, and third grade as a classroom teacher, K-2 as an RTI Math Interventionist, 2-4 Gifted and Talented, 5th grade Reading, and 7th grade English Language Arts.  I also seved as an adjunct professor at Buffalo State teaching a Practicum in Gifted, Talented, and Creative Education and Elementary Mathematics at the Master's level.
    I grew up in Western New York in East Amherst and always knew that I wanted to be a teacher.  After graduating high school, I attended Canisius College where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood/Childhood Education with a concentration in History.  During that time, I student taught at Clarence Center Elementary School.  I learned quickly that the people are what make Clarence great.  The teachers, administrators, staff, students, parents, and community share a vision which couples academic excellence with character.  I continued at Canisius to obtain my Masters of Science in Differentiated Instruction.  After seven years working in different places in a variety of roles, I made my way back to the District that gave me the BEST start to my career.  It is truly an honor to be here.
    I am married and have two beautiful elementary-aged children of my own.  While I will always consider WNY home, our family lives in Canada!  The first thing people ask how long it takes me to get to work: 47 minutes without snow. 
    I look forward to a great year!  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
