• Currently, I teach 7th grade Language Arts at Anna L. Klein School.  I have taught at ALK for 13 years now, working in grades 4 through 8 over the years.   It is a privilege to work with our exceptional staff and administration. 

    I am a former graduate from Anna L. Klein School.  I have a bachelor's degree from Jersey City State College (now New Jersey City University), and a master's degree from The College of Staten Island (CUNY).  My teaching certifications are for general elementary education, and a specialization in Language Arts/Literacy grades 5-8.

    I strongly believe that in order for a student--or anyone--to be a good writer, one must be a good reader, which is why the importance of reading is always addressed to my students.
