Hi. I am an Italian teacher for LaGrange Middle School for both 7th and 8th grade students. I also am the advisor for the Italian Club at LaGrange. I have been teaching Italian in Arlington since 1998.

I attended Emerson College and Hunter College for my BA degree. I earned my Masters from Queens College. Prior to Arlington I lived and worked in Queens, NY. I worked at WC Bryant high School in Long island City public school as an ESL teacher for several years prior to relocating to Dutchess County. I lived in Rome, Italy for 2 years.
