Welcome to 1st grade! I am now in my 25th year of teaching and I love being a part of Arcade Elementary School! I began teaching at Keshequa Elementary School in 1992 and joined Pioneer in 1997. I've taught kindergarten, first grade, and reading. After receiving my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from St. Bonaventure, I went on to receive my Master's Degree in Elementary Education and Reading from SUNY Geneseo and I'm permanently certified in New York State in both areas.I am happily married and reside in Freedom with my wonderful husband and three fabulous sons. I also have two adorable dogs. In my spare time, I enjoy relaxing and spending as much time as possible with my family, getting together with friends, reading and traveling.
