I work with the most amazing children making everyday a very rewarding experience.I have taught in both regular and special education settings. I have a master's degree in special education as well as holding a bachelor's degree in psychology. I am dual certified in both regular and special education. I have been working in Marlboro for 16 years in grades preschool to third grade. I have worked in the Early Learning Center, Frank Dugan Elementary, Frank Defino Elementary School and now, happily, in Mar El.
