Degrees and Certifications:
I am so excited to be teaching at the Horbelt School this year! This school year starts my 20th year of teaching! I graduated from Georgian Court College in May, 2002. I received my BA Degree in Special Education and I also earned my Teacher of Students With Disabilities and Elementary Education certificates. Before coming to Horbelt I was hired to teach 8th grade at Brackman as my first teaching job way back in September, 2002! Throughout my career I have also taught at the Collins School, Donahue School, and Dunfee School. I have taught in all different types of settings in Special Education and General Education. Teaching has been my passion all these years and I am so grateful I get to wake up and do what I love each day!
This year I get to work with some fabulous educators. I am working with Mrs. Russo for 6th grade Math, Ms. Rivera for 6th grade ELA, and Mrs. Piper for 6th grade ELA. Please check out their teacher websites for more information. I can't wait to work with your children to help make this school year amazing! As an educator I encourage communication between teachers, students, and parents. You can contact me by email or phone. I am confident we will make this year great by working TOGETHER!
