I am honored to serve on the NCSM Board as the Web Editor. I believe in equitable access for ALL students. I am passionate about high quality mathematics curricula and instruction. I believe in fostering a supportive environment for students, families and educators.
I look forward to bringing my passion for instruction and technology to the NCSM Board.
I always knew that I wanted to be an educator. From an early age, I was interested in helping others experience the joy of learning. Right after graduating high school, I attended Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island and majored in Secondary Education and Mathematics. After graduation, I returned to the city that I grew up in and taught high school mathematics. After teaching for a few years, I enrolled at the University of Saint Joseph and earned my Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction and then continued my education by earning my Sixth Year Certificate of Advanced Study in Educational Administration and Supervision from the University of Bridgeport. During the COVID-19 Pandemic, I decided that I wanted to help other teachers and moved out of my own classroom and into a district-wide math coaching role. As a Mathematics Coach, I worked with teachers in my district to ensure that every student in our district had access to relevant and engaging curricula, culturally responsive pedagogy, and current technology. During my time as a Mathematics Coach, I joined NCSM and attended Networking Nights, the Summer Leadership Academy, and the Virtual Annual Conference in 2021 and the in person Annual Conference in Anaheim in 2022. My involvement in NCSM helped me become a stronger Mathematics Coach and provided me an opportunity to build connections with other coaches and mathematics leaders throughout the world!
After coaching mathematics for a few years, I decided to move back into a school-based role and became an Assistant Principal in a suburban district in Connecticut. The knowledge that I have learned from NCSM leaders and members is very important in my current role as an Assistant Principal. I am excited to continue to work with NCSM leaders and members and to serve on the NCSM Board as the Web Editor.
