Degrees and Certifications:
I began my meager life in a very small town in Massachusetts, but had to move around New England a few times while growing up. After completing my English degree at North Adams State College, I embarked on my career in education. Unlike many teachers, my career has taken many forms: special education programs, universities, proprietary education, and public education. I furthered my education with a master’s degree in education from Notre Dame College. I have traveled and lived in many countries around the world which has given me the ability to realize the worth of various perspectives and cultures. I have also lived and taught in many regions of the United States which has also given me a great appreciation of our country. I thrive on those “Aha” moments in the classroom when the students grasp onto a concept that has been avoiding them. And I am equally enthralled when they bring up a valid point that I missed when reading a text. Watching students build more and more skills is what has kept me in the profession for more than 30 years.
