Degrees and Certifications:
For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to be a teacher. I attended a small school in Colton, NY. In high school, I would spend my study hall time helping out in the Kindergarten classes. I attended SUNY Potsdam and received my Bachelor's degree in English and Elementary Education, as well as my Master's degree.
I began teaching for the Watertown City School District in 1992. I have had the pleasure of teaching here at Ohio Street School and taught first grade for the majority of my teaching career. I taught a multi-age class of Kindergarten and First Grade students for two years.
I have been married for 25 years and have two wonderful sons. Our oldest son is 20 (a college sophomore) and our youngest is 17 (a high school junior). They are wonderful young men and we are very proud of them.
