I am a Broome County native, born and raised in Vestal. I attended SUNY Brockport and then returned to school to complete my education degree at SUNY Cortland, where I also earned my master's degree. My husband, daughter and stepson are all Forks graduates and I have taught fifth grade for 13 years, all here at CF. As a result, I feel a strong personal and professional loyalty to the District.
The 2014-2015 school year will be different since I will only be teaching ELA and social studies. We in fifth grade are very excited about this change as we anticipate a smoother transition for students going to middle school. We are also looking forward to focusing on only one or two content areas.
Please feel free to contact me via e-mail over the summer and throughout the school year. I look forward to meeting all of you at Open House the evening of September 2nd.
