Biography
I am currently a student in the GSLIS Program at Queens College going for a second Master's Degree. This is my first time in 14 years that I am on the other side of a classroom. I am both excited and terrified. I am a public high school English teacher at Forest Hills High School. I have taught all levels of English including ICT or Team Teaching. I just became a runner. I started off running with my friend from college over Labor Day Weekend, 2019. Now i've run every week for 5 weeks. i completed my first "run", which was a 5k. I was so amped up that I signed up for my second run for the end of October. The runner's high is real!

Interests

Dancing. This includes, watching and doing. I was a dancer for fourteen years. I participated in all types of dance including:

  • ballet
  • tap
  • jazz
  • hip hop
I competed in dance for four years. We wpuld travel all over the tri-state area competing against other dance schools. In college I was a part of the dance club called Danceworks. My oldest daughter now carries on the tradition of dancer in the family. She has been an active ballerina and acrobatic dancer since she was two years old.

It also is a reality check that I actually wasn't as good as I thought.[https://ew.com/gallery/so-you-think-you-can-dance-25-best-performances-ever/]

Family
My husband and I met when we were fifteen years old. We had homeroom together because alphabetically, our last names went one after the other. We became friends, went to the prom together, then split because of college. I went to Hofstra University [https://www.hofstra.edu/] and he went to The Ohio State. Years later, we would have dinner and this October 31, will mark ten years of marriage. In these ten years, we have moved three times and have had two kids. They are ages six and two.
