I hold a B.A. in English from Hofstra University and two M.A. degrees in English and Secondary Education from Adelphi University. I am a doctoral candidate and am working on my dissertation in Curriculum and Teaching at Columbia University’s Teachers College. I have been trained by the Suffolk County Department of Health for the Just Kids Developmental Pre-school, and the Huntington Union Free School District as a parent advocate for parents of children with disabilities. I also serve on the Assessment Committee, the Committee on Environment, Quality of Life and Disability Issues, the General Education Objectives Review Committee, and the Remedial Math Task Force.
