I have been a Special Education teacher in East Brunswick for three years. Prior to joining East Brunswick Public Schools, I was a Special Education teacher for the New York City Department of Education for 2 years.
I graduated from Pace University with a Master of Science Degree in Education and a
Bachelors of Arts Degree in International Politics from The Pennsylvania State University.
My goal is to not only improve your child's academic skills but to also increase your child's sense of independence, self-discipline, and motivation to learn. I am so excited to spend the year with all of my students and watch them grow developmentally, socially, and academically.
Aside from teaching, I love to spend time with my family and friends, travel, cook, design party decorations, and go for walks!
