I am happy to say that I have been a member of the Tapestry community since 2007. I have over 14 years of teaching experience. Prior to coming to Tapestry I was a first grade teacher in Virginia. Although most of my time has been spent working with the fantastic first graders, I have also worked with kindergarten, second and third graders. I love watching my students learn and grow throughout the school year. I hold an M.S. in education from Medaille College and a New York State certification in Elementary Education (grades PreK-6). I enjoy spending time with my husband, Matt, and three boys, William, Jackson and Ethan. We enjoy spending time outdoors together with our dog, Piper. I also enjoy reading and gardening.
