This is my 11th year as the Gifted and Talented teacher in Mendham. I actively promote gifted education and attend many conferences and workshops that further my education on this topic, like the NJ Association for Gifted Children Annual conference held in the spring. This is also my 6th year as the school's STEM teacher. Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders. Occupations in STEM-related careers are some of the fastest growing and best paid of the 21st century, and they often have the greatest potential for job growth. Students are extremely curious and impressionable, so instilling an interest at an early age could spark a lasting desire to pursue a career in any of these fields.
Philosophy: Think critically, creatively, while working collaboratively!
My Family: I feel so blessed everyday to have a wonderful husband and our 3 children. I have 2 daughters and 1 son who are all 10 yrs. old and are not triplets!?! We love to play, travel, ride our bikes and spend time with one another as it seems like they grow up so fast!
