Welcome to the learning adventure known as 4th grade!

My Education and Professional Background

In 1989, earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics from Stockton University of NJ. After a few years at the American Stock Exchange, I decided to become a teacher. In 1996, I earned my Master of Arts Degree in Elementary Education From Georgian Court University of NJ. Tarwater has been my home since 2000. Over the years I have taught 6th grade, 3rd grade and 4th grade.

My Educational Philosophy

"I care about you and I want you to learn", was on the board of my very first teaching class. It has become the base of my teaching style. Our classroom evolves into a family, where all children have a safe environment to be respected while growing, asking questions, making mistakes and learning.
