All About ME!
I graduated from Taconic Hills High School and went to SUNY Plattsburgh for my Teaching Degree. I then went to SUNY New Paltz for my Masters. I taught Kindergarten in Taconic Hills for 9 years and then began working here at Pine Plains Central Schhol District! Though I have over 20 years of teaching experience, I come to school each day eager to give my students the best day possible. I have been the town Pee-Wee Basketball Director, Pine Plains Recreation Director, and the Founder of the Stissing Sprint Triathlon. I also created the Pine Plains Summer Day Camp and am the Camp Director (so I get to spend my summer with children in a whole different light). I also have two children who are in the Pine Plains School District.
I am excited to be teaching 4th Grade! My classroom goals are to teach my students by creating a fun environment where each child is able to learn and make progress, both academically & socially. Through my experience, I have found that children learn best when they have a safe, caring environment where high expectations are clear and attainable. I will push each student to be engaged and work to their potential each day. I believe that by having a strong parent/teacher relationship, we can work together to give your child an amazing 4th Grade experience! Let the learning begin..........
