     ABOUT THE TEACHER:
     
    I have been a teacher in the Wappingers School District for 16 years. I attended Siena College for my bachelor's degree and went on to Mount St. Mary College for my Masters degree in teaching. I taught Social Studies and Special Education while at Van Wyck JHS, and I now am a Special Education teacher at the greatest school in the district, Orchard View!!!

    THOSE OF YOU TAKING JANUARY/JUNE REGENTS (especially our Seniors):  PREPARE!!!!!! REVIEW!!!!! ASK FOR HELP IN STUDYING/REVIEWING!! It's NEVER TOO EARLY to START!!          

    FIRST quarter is going fast!!!!!

    How did this beginning fly by so quickly?? I feel as if I just met you all!  We need to focus on getting those averages up and finishing the semester with a bang!
    Proud of you all with the effort you are putting forth, and if you think you can put in more, NOW is your chance!
