I started at the Dawe in 1999, the same year I got married to my husband Jon. Before that I taught first grade in Palm Springs, Florida for a year. From 1999-2008 I taught first grade. From 2008-the present I have taught second grade. I absolutely LOVE teaching second grade. At this age they are still so excited about school and such eager learners, while becoming independent learners.
I received my undergraduate degree in Educational Studies at Salem State College (now University) in 1996. I started working towards my masters degree at Wheelock College in Boston shortly after graduating from Salem. I received my masters degree in 1998. In the fall, I moved to Florida for a year. Realizing I wanted to be back in Massachusetts, I moved back in 1999.
In my personal life I've been married to my wonderful husband Jon since July 31, 1999. He is also a teacher. He is at Foxboro High School where he teaches business. I had my first child, Joey, in 2002. Then I had my second child, Amanda, in 2004. On my spare time I like to spend quality time with my family since we are always running in a million different directions.
