My Educational Background:

Welcome to our class page for Pre-K 3! This is an amazing program that McGraw has started and I am so excited to be teaching it! I am from Homer NY, which is where I graduated High School. I then went on to complete a Bachelors Degree at SUNY Cortland in Early Childhood and Childhood Education which certifies me to teach children from birth to grade 6. I also have a dual minor in social sciences and developmental psychology. I am now working on a Masters Degree at SUNY Cortland in Literacy Education for grades K-12. I have several years of experience working in education and I enjoy working with younger children. I worked as a Substitute Teacher for many years while completing my degree. I also spent some time working with Lime Hollow's Forest Preschool which is what sparked my interest to pursue certifications in outdoor learning and its benefits for children. 

Non-Educational information:

I now reside in Cortland with my partner of 6 years and our two awesome dogs; Meeka a Siberian Husky and Kenai a German Shepherd. (I will share a prize with any student that can tell me what Disney Movie I got my Shepherds name from- no cheating! :) ) I am a life long learner and I love to learn new things even outside of school! Some of my hobbies include hiking, Crossfit/working out, and spending every chance I can with family and friends.
