I am a NJ State certified K-5/5-8 Language Arts teacher. Currently, I teach elementary school. I have been teaching 4th grade for 3 years and prior to that I taught middle school (6-8) for 5 years. I graduated from William Paterson University in 2013 with a major in Elementary/Middle school education as well as English (with a concentration in writing.) I graduated WPUNJ magna cum laude (with a cumulative GPA of 3. 7.) Throughout college, I was awarded scholarships based on my academic excellence, obtained invitations to three national honor societies, and was even nominated for the Distinguished Student Teacher Award. Upon graduating, I was fortunate enough to receive a job offer at the school where I student taught. During the school year, I work after school programs to help students prepare for state exams and have even taught summer school.
