As the 8th grade Assistant Principal, I am excited to work with the dedicated staff, hard working students, supportive parents and caring Van Wyck community.

I began my career at Van Wyck Junior High School in 2001 teaching 8th grade Social Studies and later became the "Teacher in Charge" of the Social Studies Department. In 2009, I became the 7th grade Assistant Principal and have enjoyed watching students grow academically and socially while helping them feel "connected" to the school.  

My academic credentials include earning a Bachelor in History from SUNY Cortland, a Masters in Secondary Education and Social Studies from SUNY New Paltz, as well as an education administrative certification from the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.
