    About Me:

    This is my ninth year teaching at Peekskill High School. I graduated from Manhattanville College with a B.A. in Mathematics and M.P.S. in Secondary Special Education and Mathematics. Outside of my teaching duties, I am also the advisor for both the Math Honor Society and Math Competition Club at the high school. I enjoy watching and playing sports (GO YANKEES!!), traveling, all things TV, and spending time with family and friends.

    **Our Overarching Goal: To increase our graduation rate; and to improve each student's performance on the New York State Regents Examination by 5%**
