Degrees and Certifications:
This is a photo of Mr. Brinck and I at a bicycle ride that raised money for cancer research.
I grew up in Mohawk, New York, and Mr. Brinck was in my Kindergarten class! In 1990, I graduated from the College of Saint Rose with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education, and had a concentration in English. The first place I taught was at Mohawk Central School. While there, I taught Kindergarten and third grade. Next, I was a lead classroom teacher for the Herkimer Area Resource Center. In 1993, I graduated from St. Rose a second time. This time, I earned a Master of Science in Education degree, and my major was Reading. I became a teacher at Poland Elementary School in 1994. At Poland CSD, I am currently a third grade teacher, and have also been a classroom support teacher, a prekindergarten teacher, and an integrated preschool teacher. My favorite thing about teaching at Poland CSD is my students!
We live in Stittville. In my spare time, I love to be outdoors hiking, kayaking, gardening, and riding my bike.
