3rd Grade Rocks!
 
I love Cranberry Pines, and I'm very excited to teach 3rd Grade this year.  I cannot wait to meet my new class, although I bet I already know many of you from Lego Club or my time as the Math Specialist!
 
About Me:
 
Speaking of math, I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics from Montclair State and worked in the actuarial field for ten years. After volunteering in my childrens' classes at Chairville, I knew I had to teach and went to grad school at Rider University for elementary and middle school education.  
 
I love teaching mathReading is amazingWriting is awesome.  Word Study is a blast.  Science and Social Studies ROCK!  Which is my favorite?  All of them!  

When I'm not teaching or running the Harry Potter Club, I enjoy reading, visiting historic sites, and hiking with my family.  My husband Eric is a Systems Engineer at Cisco Systems, and we have three adult kids, Jake, Randy, and Abby, in college or just graduated. We have a dog named Sheldon who is scared of everything, an irritable older gray cat named Murphy, and a little bad cat, Gigabyte.  I also volunteer at Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge Animal Hospital and take care of squirrels, opossums, owls, and fawns!
