This is my tenth year in Piscataway, but thirteenth year teaching.  I previously taught in Burlington City, New Jersey; Baltimore, Maryland and Trenton, New Jersey.  Before that, I spent four years completing my Bachelors degree at the College of New Jersey.  My favorite poets and authors include Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes, Mark Twain, Sylvia Plath, Marjane Satrapi, Wally Lamb, Peggy Orenstein...I could go on forever.  In my free time, (haha), I enjoy traveling, hiking, yoga, cooking, baking, photographing architecture, reading fiction, and writing short stories. 
I look forward to working with the students to build a positive and successful classroom community.  I expect each student to give full effort to all assignments and discussions.
