Teaching:

-The 2021-2022 school year will be my fourth year at RVS!

-One of my favorite Language Arts units to teach in 4th grade is Greek Mythology! In Social Studies, I am especially excited for our unit on Immigration to the United States in the early 1900s!

-Although my background is as a Reading Specialist, I also love math. It was always one of my favorite subjects in school, along with world language and history!

 

About Me:

-I grew up in Morristown, NJ and still live there.

-One of my favorite memories from when I was in 4th grade was learning how to play the violin! I played from 4th grade to 12th grade, and finally took out my violin again this summer after many years of not having played it! :)

-In my spare time, I also love taking dance classes, visiting Long Beach Island during the summer, and spending time with family and friends.

-Two of my favorite foods are pizza and pretzels! :)
