It is a pleasure to be a part of the Arbor Intermediate Staff for another year!  I am looking forward to a wonderful year supplying support to both students in grades 4 & 5.  I will work closely with identified students in Language Arts Literacy.  Students will be working in small groups with both push-in and pull-out support depending on the students' needs.  This year we will continue to have a WIN period!  During WIN all students will receive assistance in instruction to help them in areas they are struggling and excelling in.  I am very excited to work with your children and watch them grow over the course of the school year.

I am a graduate of The Ohio State University with a BS in Zoology.  At Cook College, Rutgers, I obtained my teaching certification to teach Biology K-12 and Elementary Education K-8.  In 2002 I received my Masters in Reading Specialization at Kean University.  I taught grade 5 science and integrated language arts at the Forrestdale School in Rumson, NJ.  After receiving training in the Teacher's College Reading and Writing Program I became an Educational Consultant for Content Connect.  Currently I am using my reading specialization certification at the Arbor School as a member of their Support Specialist staff!
