About the TeacherAs a life-long resident of the Hudson Valley, I was born and raised in the City of Beacon, and have lived in Wappingers Falls with my family for the past 20 years. I have four children of my own that have all attended schools within the WCSD. During my spare time, I love to play games and laugh with family and friends. In addition, I always try to find time each day to sneak away and get lost in a book.The 2020 -2021 school year will be my 29th year of teaching, and I am very excited to have the opportunity, once again, to be teaching 1st grade here at Evans. During my teaching career, I have taught middle school science, high school biology, English Language Arts academic intervention (grades 4 - 6), 3rd grade and for the last 9 years, 1st grade. I have to say that teaching first grade has been a wonderful experience, and I am so excited to meet all of my new friends this fall. I know our year together will be filled with lots of fun and learning!Thank you for sharing your child with me!
