I am excited to join the Clinton Public School community! I have been teaching elementary education at Brayton School in Summit, New Jersey for the past fifteen years. I taught grades 3, 4, and 5 and earned Teacher of the Year recognition in 2020. I have earned my Master of Arts in Education Technology in 2012 and Master of Arts in Educational Leadership in 2017, both from Ramapo College. While at Brayton, I served on several committees, including the school's data committee, math curriculum committee, science curriculum committee, language arts curriculum committee, and I served as Facility Co-Coordinator on Emergency Management & Safety Team. I regularly facilitated staff meetings and provided professional development on utilizing technology in education. In 2022, I also created, implemented, and supervised the 5th-Grade Student Leadership Club.
From 2017-2022, I served as the Coordinator of Summit School's summer enrichment program known as FLASH. FLASH served hundreds of students each summer in grades 1 through 8. I managed and supervised all aspects of the 400-student program which included: hiring teachers and counselors, administering teacher training and completing staff evaluations, managing the operations budget, developing the calendar and schedule, and communicating with the school community. While at Summit, I also served as head coach of the Summit High School girls ice hockey team from 2008-2023 and was twice named Star Ledger Girls Ice Hockey Coach of the Year. I cannot wait to get started at CPS!
