•    I believe that successful teaching and learning takes place when the teacher and the students solve problems together, value and enjoy education together, and develop a sense of confidence and courage as a group in order to seek and meet challenges! I believe that a successful teacher is one who continues to learn along with his/her students.

    It is my pleasure to introduce myself as your child’s third grade teacher! I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and Interpersonal Communication from Rider University, and then continued to accomplish my Masters plus 30 of Science in Educational Leadership from Walden University. I am currently in the nineteenth year of my teaching career and as each year goes by I fall deeper in love with my passion for education. During my first year in Long Branch, I taught fifth grade at the Anastasia School. For the past ten years, I taught third grade at West End, and eight years of  third grade at George L. Catrambone.
