• I moved to Texas, from New York, in 2009 with my husband Tom, and our three children, Nicholas, Matthew and Daniel. Nicholas graduated from Michigan State and is currently working in New York City. Matthew graduated from the University of Texas - Dallas with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, he works in Bedford. Daniel attends the University of Texas - Dallas and is studying accounting. We have  two cats, Maddie and Mia and a dog Molly.

    My favorite thing about living in Texas is that you do not have to shovel snow! I love Texas winters! I enjoy cooking Italian food from my Grandma's recipes, especially when I get to pass her traditions down to my boys. The last few years my husband and I have been able to travel around the country and I love taking pictures of the places we visit. I also enjoy Bunko night and reading.

    I have taught Pre-K, and worked as a reading teacher, a 4th Grade Math Teacher, and 3rd Grade Science, Social Studies, and Reading Teacher. In addition to my Texas Certification, I have a B.A. in Mathematics from Dominican College and a Masters in Reading from Long Island University. I am very excited to be teaching First Grade in Blue Ridge.
