My career as an educator has been filled with many challenges and opportunities.  I began teaching social studies at Arlington Middle School in 1982.   Those first six years at the middle level taught me that I must care as much for my students’ social and emotional growth as for their academic success.  Upon completion of my MS in Secondary Social Studies I moved on to teach for the next ten years at Saugerties High School.  It was there that I developed the newly established Participation in Government course and worked on issues of cultural diversity.   In 1999, I left Saugerties to work in professional development at BOCES.  In June of 2018 I retired from working as a Technology Integration Specialist in the Wappingers School District.  I am currently Assistant Director of the Mid-Hudson Teacher Center. The links above highlight different aspects of my work which illustrate a personal emphasis on reflective practice and attention to the social and emotional growth of students.
