I am native of Brooklyn, New York. I received her Bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo and her Master’s degree from Long Island University. After two years of teaching with the New York City Board of Education, I decided to continue my educational career in Atlanta, Georgia. I believe in the classroom, students do not simply write, they create art, and their writing is a representation of who they are in various forms. I enjoy watching the art of my students grow into wonderful masterpieces. It is my educational philosophy that with a motivated teacher by their side, students gain the much needed fundamentals of writing combined with a deep literacy connection to develop a true love for both reading and writing. I enjoy spending time with her son and husband, traveling, reading, game nights with family, and serving/volunteering in the community service.
