About Me: I’ve known since my first day of kindergarten that I wanted to be a teacher. Knowing that I can make a difference in a child’s life is everything to me. I’ve been working with children since my teenage years. My first job was volunteering at an after school program when I was 16. From there, I went on to become a museum educator in the Staten Island children’s museum for two years, being a substitute teacher for grades 1-8, and then becoming a preschool teacher. I am happy to be a part of St. Ephrem Catholic Academy, and I’m looking forward to continuing my journey!
