Welcome! As a new teacher to Theodore Roosevelt, I would like to introduce myself. I am a New Jersey native, born and raised in Monmouth County. I went to Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina and graduated with a BA in Fine Arts. Art has always been my passion, and I have experimented with various mediums in all genres of art. After moving back to New Jersey from South Carolina, I taught Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science to seventh and eighth grades in Elizabeth, NJ. After five years in Elizabeth, I began teaching Language Arts and Social Studies in a private school in Jersey City. During my years in Elizabeth and Jersey City, I went back to school to get my certification in Elementary Education, Art (K-12), and a Masters in Special Education in Applied Behavior Analysis. Art is where my passions and heart lie, and I am so excited to bring my experiences to TRS. I can't wait for the students and I to embark on new experiences together!
