WELCOME TO BASIC SKILLS


Welcome parents to my Basic Skills Program. I am looking forward to meeting all of you and working with your children this academic year. I am positive we will have a fantastic year learning new skills in a creative and fun way.
    I have been teaching in the Brigantine School System for 26 years in both St. Philip the Apostle School and Brigantine Elementary School. Prior to this I taught in the Atlantic Public Schools for 3 years and Octagon
School of Learning for 1 year. In 2000, I achieved my Master's Degree from Marygrove College. In 2008, I was fortunate enough to win Teacher of the Year what an honor this was for me.
    My mission statement is to build positive self-esteem and allow my students to reach their full potential. I want to instill a life long desire for learning and know that each day my teaching has made a difference in their lives. I believe in my students' ability to grow academically, socially, and emotionally. I want my pupils to always remember that they can be anything their heart desires, the sky is the limit.
