I am originally from Eden from where I graduated. I then went on to receive a dual certification in Elementary Education/Special Education from Geneseo State University. Afterwards I received a Masters of Education from SUNY Fredonia. I started my career at Pioneer as an elementary special education teacher and continue to use that experience in my current placement. I am always learning new instructional practices and creating new ways to movtivate students to reach their best potential, even after 20+ years of teaching!!!On a personal note...I am married to my husband Scott, who is a Mortgage Banker in Orchard Park and have two teenage sons, Trevor and Tyler. I also have two golden retrievers, Ace and Bella, who are full of energy and bring us so much joy. As a family we enjoy spending time together playing outside, swimming, skiing, visiting local attractions, and relaxing at Rushford Lake during the summer.
