A life-long learner. A mother. A wife. A daughter. A connector. An author. Sum of all parts: An educator.
After eight years of working in marketing and business development, I started my teaching and learning journey at Carrie E. Tompkins Elementary School in Croton-on-Hudson, NY. After ten years as an elementary classroom teacher at Greenwich’s first International Baccalaureate World School, the International School at Dundee, I’ve transitioned into a Library Media Specialist first at Cider Mill Elementary School, the Grades 3-5 school within the Wilton Public Schools, and currently at Julian Curtiss Elementary School, a World Language School, in Greenwich.
