I can't believe it, but this is my 18th year of teaching and my second year teaching the Gifted and Talented/Enrichment students at the G. Harold Antrim Elementary School.  I teach both push-in for grades K-2 and pull-out for grades 2-8.  Part of my job also provides the opportunity for me to teach STEM for all students in grades 2-8 on a rotating basis througout the school year.  
        Before teaching in the G&T/Enrichment classroom,  I spent many years teaching third and fourth grades.  I also taught 6th grade math, technology and also accounting earlier in my teaching career.  Before becoming a teacher, I was the Chief Financial Officer and Tax Collector for the Township of Rumson.  My favorite career by far is teaching!
         I am a graduate of Point Pleasant Boro High School and Georgian Court University.  I am a certified elementary school teacher and secondary business education teacher.  I hold a masters degree in Special Education, Inclusion from Georgian Court University and just recently received my supervisor's certification from my alma mater.  I am presently pursuing my G&T Certification from Rutger's University.  
         My husband is the Captain of the Bay Head Police Department.  We like to go watch the Yankees play in New York, we like to ride our tandem bike when it's nice out, go on day trips, and we LOVE to go to the beach.  I also have three children!  Their names are Sean,  JT and McKayla.  Sean is going to college and JT and McKayla are in high school.  We have a black Havanese dog that we named Mia and a white Havanese that we named Harley.  They are both very friendly and love to go for walks.  
         Besides spending time with my family, I enjoy running.  I love to run long distances and try to get out on the road as often as possible.  Below is a list of my other favorites.  I hope you enjoy getting to know all about me and my family :)
