My many years of teaching include a decade spent teaching science at the college level. I bring depth of understanding and real-world examples to the classroom.

I started teaching at the academy of Mount Saint Ursula almost five years ago. I graduated from Lehman college with a degree in Pre-Medicine. My initial thoughts were to go to medical school. I went to Albert Einstein Medical School for a day and after enduring an entire day of gross anatomy I decided that Medical school was not for me. I then entered the field of teaching. All thanks to my professor Dr. Tiwari who is also the chair of the science department. I am currently teaching Biology Regents and Forensic science. Your students will enjoy science since they will always be active and enjoy hands on activities that will inspire their minds and imagination. I am also the volleyball coach. Last year (2011) we made it to playoffs. I am currently working on my Masters Degree in Lehman College. I am excited to say that I will graduate in June 2013 with a degree in Science Education for grades 7th through 12th. My goal is to make sure that I am updating myself professionally so that my students get the best quality education I can give them. Our mission is to prepare students for college and I will educate them with the tools that they need to succeed in a University and in life.
