A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME:
MY HOMETOWN: I grew up in historic Rutland, Vermont.
MY EDUCATION: I graduated from Fairhaven Union High School and went on to earn my undergraduate teaching degree at Castleton University. I received my Masters in Special Education from the College of Saint Joseph.
MY CAREER: My first job as a student was at my neighborhood McDonalds. After graduating, I opened a home-based daycare working with children. I loved that experience so much I went back to school to become a licensed teacher!
OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL: I think you would consider my family “pet people”. My husband and daughter help me care for two dogs, a cat, a hamster and two fish! We love to travel in our free time. My favorite trip (so far) was the amazing adventure my husband and I shared in Hawaii! This was definitely a “must-repeat” trip. When I am not dreaming about sand, ocean and palm trees, I am riding horses and reading books. I absolutely love to READ!
MY FAVORITE SUBJECT IN SCHOOL WAS: Reading
