I am very excited to be working with the ESL population of Monmouth Regional High School.
I began my teaching career as a Paraprofessional in Keyport High School, NJ, and decided to pursue a teaching career to help others and hopefully enrich student's lives. I left KHS to attend Kean University for a Certificate to teach English to speakers of other languages. Every day in the classroom reminds me that I made the right and best choice. Working with bilingual students is rewarding in that, as teachers, our students come to us from so many different cultures and backgrounds. They embrace the American culture and year after year, I find that I embrace their cultures and want to hear all their stories. I learn about students' lives in other countries, their families, their customs, their love of their nation's foods, and their words. I feel that getting to know my students is the first step in their journey to acquiring English and moving on in their new country.
I taught first grade and then Kindergarten in an ESL-only classroom for 11 years, and was a push-in/pull-out teacher for 5 years in Roselle, NJ, before I found myself at MRHS. I have been at MRHS since April, 2022.
