About: I am a Special Education teacher, but I run a special intervention program for any students experiencing academic/behavioral issues. I teach the Math portion of the program, and this is my 15th year teaching at the high school and 23rd year teaching overall.

Hobbies: Well, I like wine! I have two young daughters so I can tell you what hobbies I used to have. I love playing/coaching soccer, being an avid reader, and wine tastings in Napa (hard to do from CT).

Fun Facts: I won the Olmstead award from Williams College; I’m a board member for a wonderful non-profit that fights against domestic violence; I can't learn a foreign language to save my life, but I can read Braille.
