Welcome to the 2016/2017 school year. I am excited to be a part of your child's education. Here is a little information you may want to know about me. I was born and raised in Watertown. I actually was a Knickerbocker Bear when I was a kid. I graduated from Watertown High School and went on to study education at SUNY Potsdam where I earned a teaching degree in elementary education. I also have a Master's degree in reading from Potsdam. I have been teaching for 20 years. I began my career teaching in Vero Beach, Florida. While in Florida I had the opportunity to teach 4th grade for two years and 2nd grade for one year. After spending three years in Florida, I decided to come back home to Watertown. This is my 17th year at Knickerbocker.
I am also a fitness instructor at the YMCA and encourage children and adults to lead an active, healthy lifestyle. Believe it or not, I also play ice hockey on a women's team in Clayton.
I have two wonderful children that your kids will hear all about! I love to share my family with your children and love to hear all about their families as well.
