"All I really need to know ... I learned in kindergarten" - Robert Fulghum
Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to PAE!
Park Ave has been my home-away-from-home for the past 7 years. This is my eighth year teaching Kindergarten and I absolutely LOVE it! Before coming to PAE, I taught Kindergarten and Preschool in Western Mass for ten years. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education and a master in Special Education: Moderate Disabilities PreK-8.
In my spare time I like to spend time with my family and my 3 fur-babies (Ollie, Nemo and Gus-Gus), scrapbook, crochet, dance, entertain and play board games. I'm also attending grad classes for a second masters degree in Elementary School Administration. One day I hope to be an elementary school principal, but not anytime soon. I'm loving being in the classroom too much to leave it!
