My first blog and a little bit about me. Actually its my second blog, did the philosophy statement first! LOL

Since I was young, relatives and friends of my parents who were and continue to be educators surrounded me.  So, it just seemed natural when I entered the teaching profession. I always enjoyed school and continue to enjoy learning through professional development, collaboration with other educators, and my own personal teaching experiences. Science and math have always been my favorite subjects and those are the subjects I have taught to K - 8th grade students. I am currently a K-8 Instructional Math Coach in the city of New Haven. I work at Hill Central School with a very dedicated and dynamic group of teachers and administrators. We recently formed a S.T.E.M committee in our school and are hoping to make that the theme of our school or at the very least a large part of curriculum. Therefore I am very excited to have enrolled in UNH’s IT and Digital Media Literacy Program. My experience with technology or computers might seem rather limited in that I have taught with a few tools and am involved in limited social media; in other words facebook. I have taught students using graphing calculators, power points presentations, lessons with the smartboard, and incorporated the use of quizdoms into my lessons. I am obviously planning on expanding upon my use and involvement with technology through this sixth year program.

As far as getting to know me personally. I have been married for 17 years and am the mother of 3 very energetic boys. We love to travel, ski, and spend parts of the summer at our family beach cottage in Old Saybrook, CT. I love to cook, read, and spend time with family and friends.
