I attended Addison Central School where I majored in Math and Science. Upon graduating in 1984,
I attended Corning Community College where I received my AS degree majoring in Art.
I then transfered to Alfred State for one semester majoring in floral design and
interior design. In 1987, I transfered to Buffalo State College where I obtained
my BS in art education. After coming back to Addison, I attended two years at Mansfield
University getting my Masters in art education. I started teaching at Canisteo Elementary
School the Fall of 1991. At Canisteo, I have been in charge of teaching elementary
students grade Pre-k through 6th until the school merged with Greenwood.
and then, taught Pre-k through 4th.up until 2013. After 23 years of teaching in the
Elementary grades I am now teaching high school grades 7- 12.My extra curricular activities
included coaching the Varsity Swim Team and Lifeguarding for Family Swim.
I am still living in Addison with my samoyed who is trained as a Therapy Dog so we spend
our weekends visiting people in the nursing homes and hospitals with the goal of helping
those who suffer emotionally.
