I grew up in St. Cloud, Florida. I graduated from Florida Atlantic University in 2016. This is my first year living in New York City and teaching for the DOE. I am currently pursuing a Masters of Science in Teaching Urban Children with Disabilities with a Bilingual Extension at Long Island University. Teaching allows me to shape future leaders and that is something I am very passionate about. I decided to become an educator so that I can have a positive impact on the lives of children while helping them succeed academically.

I went to Long Island University CW Post. I graduated with my degree in early childhood and childhood education. I decided to come to PS 330 to give the students the tools they need to become whatever they aspire to be in life and to make sure they never give up. Elementary school was a great time for me, and was the reason I wanted to become an elementary school teacher. I specifically remember my first grade teacher. She taught me learning could be fun, and that I was capable of whatever I put my mind to. This is exactly what I want to instill in my students, and hope to bring back the love of learning.

I grew up in Middle Village, Queens. I went to Mary Louis Academy in Jamaica Estates for High School. As an undergraduate I attended Hofstra University where I majored in Elementary Ed and Psychology. As a graduate student I attended Queens College and studied ESL. I have worked for the DOE for 18 years. What I love most about my job is that everyday is different; different teaching points, different schedule/activities per day, different student personalities. I mostly enjoy working with children who smile, are eager to learn, and grow each and everyday. I spend my free time with my 3 young children and my husband. We all try to keep active.
