Master's of Science in Teaching Grades 1-6
I started my teaching career in 2013, and I joined the McGraw Central School District in 2019. Prior to coming to McGraw I taught fourth and fifth grade in the Dryden Central School District. While teaching in Dryden I was an advisor for the Green Team and the elementary Ski Club Advisor.
Life Experience & Interests:
I am originally from New Berlin in Chenango County, where I grew up on a dairy farm. Growing up on a farm was an experience I truly enjoyed. It was a great learning experience for me, and I enjoyed having all of the animals, in particular my three horses. I attended SUNY Oneonta where I earned my Bachelor's Degree. While attending SUNY Oneonta I also worked part time as an aide at Pathfiinder Village in Edmeston, NY. Aside from my current position as a teacher in the McGraw Central School District, that was my favorite job. I will never forget the experiences I had and lessons I learned while working there. It was that position that really made me realize how much I wanted to be a teacher, and how much I truly enjoyed helping others.
One of my favorite hobbies from living on a farm was riding horses, which I still enjoy doing but no longer have them. I competed throughout my high school career, and I was part of the equestrian team while attending SUNY Oneonta. I love any opportunity to spend time outdoors. During the winter, I enjoy downhill skiing with my friends. During the summer, my husband and I always plant a large garden with all kinds of vegetables. I also enjoy cooking/baking with my family. When I can, I enjoy sitting down with a good book.
My husband is a graduate of McGraw Central School District. We have two children and a Yorkie-Poodle.
