I'm entering my 20TH year of teaching at West Shore! Every year has brought me fresh faces, and lately, familiar faces as we have several Wildcat students from last year returning as 8th graders! I cannot wait to embrace this new school year for all it will bring: the exciting, invigorating, worthwhile, and new insights on learning: my students' learning, and my learning too!
How did I get here?
*Bachelor of Arts -Economics, emphasis in Finance, Marketing, & Management - University of Connecticut~Storrs.
It was through volunteering as a youth basketball coach that I found my passion to pursue a career in teaching!
*Masters of Science -Education, University of Bridgeport. Certified Grades 4-8 in Core subjects.
*Masters of Arts in Holistic Thinking & Learning through the Graduate Institute ~ Bethany.
When I'm not cooking, grilling, or conjuring up new chowders & soups, I love to read, travel, be at the beach, and hang with our dog Zo-Zo and our three cats: Jeter, Rizzoli, and Isles.
Otherwise, you can find me coaching Jonathan Law Girls' Basketball from Thanksgiving on through March!!
