Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am thrilled to be a part of the fifth grade team at Smith School again this year! This is my tenth year here in Tenafly and I have an additional eight years of classroom teaching experience in Bergen County.
We can all agree that the past few school years have challenged us in ways that we could have never imagined. I am beyond ready to begin the process of getting back to business as usual in the classroom. I am eagerly awaiting a traditional first day of school when I can see the unmasked smiling faces of my students!
As you know, a very exciting change is in the works for our 5th grade students during the 2022-2023 school year. The Tenafly Public Schools will departmentalize instruction in mathematics, science, and social studies. This year, I will specialize as a math teacher for all 5th grade mathematicians at Smith School as well as a teacher of reading and writing for my homeroom students. I remain positive about the coming year and I am looking forward to an exciting, productive experience working with you and your child.
I am dedicated to doing everything I can to ensure the behavioral, academic, and social success of each and every one of my students. I am also committed to the importance of parent involvement in a student's education. I firmly believe that a child receives the best education possible when parents and teachers work as a team. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you may have. The best way to contact me is via email at email@example.com
