The 2018-2019 school year will be my 12th year working with EL's (English Learners) in Riverside Local Schools. This is my second year at the Riverside Campus. Last year I moved from Hadden Elementary where I taught ESL for 8 years. I love it at the high school, working with students from all over the district and meeting up with my old friends from Hadden.
I graduated from Lake Erie College in 2005 with a degree in Early Childhood Education and am certified in the state of Ohio to teach Kindergarten through 5th Grade. So that I can teach Grades 6-12, I completed post-graduate work at Lake Erie College, Notre Dame College and the University of Cincinnati and have added certifications in Reading (K-12) and TESOL (K-12), which is Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
Teaching is my second career, and I love it! I worked in accounting for 20 years before I decided to go back to school to become a teacher. I have been so happy with my decision. I learn something new every day and am continuously inspired by my students, their families, and members of the staff in the Riverside community.
I am available to speak with you any time, about your questions or ideas. I value your input, as a partner in education.
