I graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology/Elementary Education and my Master of Arts in Teaching. In March of 2004, I began teaching the first grade here at Defino Central. I then took the opportunity to become part of Defino Central's looping program for several years. I have taught both first and second grade throughout my teaching career. This is now my 15th year teaching and I am looking forward to another amazing year.
