Hello and welcome to my web page! This is my eighth year working as a reading teacher at ACSD. I am thrilled to be a part of this wonderful AHS community. ACSD has the most amazing staff and students, and I enjoy working here. My goal is to help our students develop a life-long love of reading and writing, because today's readers will be tomorrow's leaders. I believe that our students can "bloom" and become successful when we work together as a team.
I have been a Dutchess county resident for over two decades. After attending an international college, I received my bachelor's and master's degrees from SUNY New Paltz. In addition, I completed the Certificate of Advanced Study in School Leadership at SUNY New Paltz. Before joining the ACSD team, I worked as a general educator abroad in elementary/middle school settings, as well as a tutor, translator, general educator, and AIS Reading teacher for other districts in NY state. Some favorite things to do during my free time are: cooking (especially Greek food), reading, gardening, and spending time with my family.
Thank you for visiting my web page. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. I am looking forward to a successful and productive 2022-2023 school year!
