This is my education background: I have been teaching for many years. I have a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Boston University and a master’s degree in Elementary Education from Simmons College in Boston. I am also certified in teaching French to grades 5-12. For the last 20 years I have taught French and Spanish. I am a fluent French speaker and have spent much time in France. I especially love to visit Paris, where I have many cousins.
What I do outside Star Academy: I have four sons, two golden retrievers, and a black lab. My husband and I also like to ski with our children, although I am not very good at it. Reading as many different genres of books is a passion of mine. I also love to solve Cryptoquote puzzles
Teaching mantra: I believe schools lay the foundation for student’s to step outside of their comfort zone and enable the development of social relationships and interactions. I strive to be an inclusive teacher that encourages all students to participate, learn and develop meaningful relationships. I enjoy embracing each student’s culture, language, learning style, and abilities. As an educator, I wholeheartedly believe I can be the catalyst for a child’s success and that includes providing a quality of education that advocates for academic success.
