About Me

I have been teaching for 16 years in New York City.  I can’t believe it’s 16 years already.  Some days it feels like I just started and some days it feels like I’m ready to retire! LOL

I can’t remember wanting to do anything else besides becoming a teacher. O.K. I think I did want to be an astronaut when I was in second or third grade, but I quickly got over that.  I knew I wanted to become a teacher once I was in the fifth grade.

I have taught from 2nd grade to 4th grade and really enjoy teaching my kids reading, writing, math , and social studies.  I am definitely not a science person!

I met my husband Anthony while in college and we have been together since (That’s going on 17 years in total.)  My son Alex was born on October of 2005.

Here is a picture of the hubby and myself.

  2. Thanks for putting together this site. I am going to purchase the guided math book that you are reading and follow along with your comments for each chapter. Thanks for all your hard work!!!

  3. Thanks for sharing. Just 2 things about your site:
    1) I tried to grab your button and add it to my page but it shows up huge.
    2) When I read your posts in bloglovin’ the banner disappears and I have to go back in order to proceed to the next/previous post in my feed. Just FYI.
