This is my 22nd year teaching in the Allendale School District, and I have to admit that I am just as excited to begin this year with your children as I was 22 years ago. I am confident that we will have a year of growth, learning, and, of course, fun. I have taught first grade, fourth grade, and fifth grade science. This is my fouth year teaching third grade at Hillside School.
My husband and I are long time residents of Allendale, and our son, Bill, attended Hillside, Brookside, and Northern Highlands High School before attending NYU as an undergrad and Rutgers as a grad student.
Originally a New Yorker (Astoria, Queens), my husband and I moved to Allendale right after getting married. I commuted to Manhattan for six years while working for a large firm in the field of Human Resources.
I do believe that "It takes a village." and we are in partnership to make this the best year possible for your child. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to email me. I, likewise, will contact you with any concerns I may have.
