I studied Sociology at Southern Connecticut State University and received my
Master's in Secondary Education with a focus on Social Studies at the
University of New Haven. This is my 8th year teaching in Milford and my 5th
year at Harborside Middle School. I have a passion for history that I hope
shines through to my students. I try show by example that it is ok to be
passionate about a subject and let your inner "brainiac" shine!
I have been married to my husband, Tom for 12 years and have twin 8 year old
daughters Brooke and Camryn.
My goal for the year is to introduce American History to the students in a
way in which they will become active participants in the acquisition of
knowledge. To do so, they will learn to analyze facts for themselves in order
to construct their own understanding and interpretation of historical events.
Furthermore, it is my hope that they then continue to apply these skills to
future courses as they move into high school and beyond.
