Brief Bio: 
I have received a dual bachelor's degree from Kean University in Elementary Education and Psychology. In January of 2006, I began teaching at Millington School as a student teacher in second grade. Following my student teaching experience, I became a long-term substitute until the end of the school year. I was hired at Millington School as a third grade teacher and have been teaching third grade for twelve years.
