My Students

Our population is very diverse. We have many nationalities, cultures, and abilities. Our children come to school eager to learn and with a thirst for knowledge in spite of their socioeconomic hardships. Our parents do all they can to provide our children with the supplies necessary to succeed. We have an in-depth special education program, a gifted and talented program and a dual language program. My computer lab is used by students in Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade.

An elementary school classroom is like no other place in the world.

It is a home for little ones for six hours a day. Teachers not only provide an education in math, reading and other school subjects, they provide stability, love, acceptance and support for amazing little people. Teachers educate the whole child. Personally, I strive to teach values, love, and acceptance in my room as well.

My Project

I have recently completed a second master's degree in my pursuit of being the most effective educator I can be to benefit all of my students. In completing a School Leadership Masters, I have gained valuable experience and knowledge. Now my students need a teacher who is "Certifiable!" This exam, part II, will bring me one step closer to being New York State certified as a School Building and District Leader, an accolade that will only help me work to benefit my own students, the students of my building and my district. As a technology teacher, and STEAM representative for my school with the district, I have many opportunities to use this knowledge and certification to benefit my young learners and those around me!
