I grew up in Maine, where my dad still live. I went to the University of Maine for my B.S. and Queens
College for my masters degree.I have two children.I have been teaching since 1979.I taught 2 years in Maine.
Then I taught in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands (a beautiful island!). I moved to Brooklyn and taught 2
years in Our Lady of Hope in Middle Village Queens and 2 years at Our Lady of Refuge in Brooklyn.
I taught at LMEC for 3 years part time and then began teaching at Northside in Special
Education where I have been for the last 23 years. I have taught every grade K-6, both in General Education and Special Education.
My teaching assistant is Lillian Mongiardo. She is wonderful with the children and we are lucky to have
her in our classroom. We have been working together for almost 7 1/2 years now.
Levittown's mission is "Success for Every Child". I strive to reach that level of success
for my student, keeping in mind that for each child that success is different. It is also important to remember that First Graders
are still very young; so I hope my students will find school to be at least a little bit fun!
