I have been very blessed to be a teacher for over 20 years. I am a graduate of Molloy college where I earned my teaching certification and have a masters degree from Adelphi University in Reading and Learning Disabilities. My career began teaching first grade in the Malverne School District. After seven years I left to raise my three girls. Over the years I have worked as a reading specialist for the North Bellmore School District and taught Reading Enrichment classes at Hofstra University. I came to St. Edward the Confessor School in 2005 and worked as a Reading Specialist and English Language Arts teacher for the Middle School. I am happy to begin my fourth year teaching first grade.
