2nd Grade Teacher
This is my fourth year at St. Amelia School. My first position was as the literacy specialist for grades 6-8, as well as a teacher assistant in Pre-K and the Magic Penny Reading Program. Since then, I have been teaching sixth grade ELA and Literature for the past two years, and now I teach second grade. I began my career by obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Childhood Education with English Grades 7-12 at SUNY Fredonia and a Master’s Degree in Literacy at Buffalo State College.
As an alumnus of St. Stephen School, I know how important a Catholic education is to parents, teachers, and students alike. I believe that it is of the utmost for teachers to instill a life-long love of learning in students so they are successful in their academics, future careers, and life. I believe in supporting my students to meet rigorous academic goals and that it is important to have fun doing so! I hold high expectations for my students because I believe they can accomplish anything they set their minds and hearts to. My goal is to nurture well-rounded students who are intelligent, responsible, caring, and contributing members of their communities.
I truly have a passion for teaching and reading! During my spare time, I enjoy spending plenty of time with my family and friends, reading a good book, writing, watching movies, taking walks, taking photos, snowboarding, and traveling.
