I began my teaching career in 1984 in the town of Stafford Springs where I taught special needs students for three years. In 1987 I began teaching in West Hartford at Webster Hill School. After 8 years there, I moved to Smith School when it first opened in 1995. At Smith, I have taught fourth grade and spent 7 years as the Math Specialist. My current position as Curriculum Specialist allows me to work with every staff member and interact with all students. I live in South Windsor with my two children, Robert (24) and Allison (19). We love to play games, watch Yankee baseball and UConn Men's basketball games. We are also NY Giants fans. In my free time I like going to the beach, hiking and kayaking. My hobbies are reading and counted cross stitch.
