"Woodside, Queens native. Bryant High School. SUNY Purchase - Set Design first then a Lit major. Hunter College - Master's Degree and Advanced Certificate in School Supervision - Teaching is my fifth career after working at ABC Radio News, Christie's auction house, raising two children, and researching grants at Queensborough Community College! Although teaching is a little bit in my blood (Dad - high School administrator, Sister - kindergarten teacher) it was the raising of the kids and years of being a PTA president that inspired me to jump into the pedagogy pool!"
