    I've been part of the Poughkeepsie City District family for more than nine years, first entering the field of education as a Teacher’s Assistant in New York City’s District 75 in 1996. I then became a secondary school teacher of students with disabilities in the areas of math and science, then a teacher of English to middle school, high school and college level students. After entering Poughkeepsie City School District as a special education teacher and pursuing further professional development as an academic instructional coach at Poughkeepsie Middle School, I became an assistant principal at Clinton and Morse Elementary Schools, the latter of which she has called home for the past five years. 

    I believe that only through full community collaboration and unfaltering support can children achieve academic success.
