This is my fifth year teaching at Robert L. Craig School! I am very thrilled and grateful to be a part of such a wonderful school and community. I have always been very passionate about the subject I teach. During my time at Seton Hall University, I was an avid writer for the The Stillman Exchange, the business school's newspaper. I also contributed a myriad of poems to SHU's creative literary magazine, Chavez. Once I graduated, I continued to express my interest in reading and writing. Some of my poems have been published in anthologies and independent magazines. Recently, my poem "Dominoes" was published in 34th Parallel, an independent literary magazine. Dr. Ponds and I also published an article on cultural responsiveness in the classroom on ASCDExpress. Over the summer, I was invited to present at the NJDOE Statewide Equity Conference on the implementation of my best practice, Socratic Seminars. It was a wonderful experience I was able to share with both my administrators as well as three of my fellow colleagues.
Last year, I recieved my Master's degree in Creative Writing. This year is my third year as 8th grade advisor and I am really excited to help our 8th graders any way I can! This is my 5th year as Rec. Night director. If you ever have any questions about Rec. Nights, please feel free to contact me!
I welcome communication from parents and caregivers. I am bilingual in Spanish and English. If you prefer to contact me in Spanish, either through phone, email, or in-person, please do not hesitate to do so!
