Degrees and Certifications:
I have been teaching at Riverside for 18 years, and many other years elsewhere. Long ago, I too attended Riverside Elementary for Kindergarten, so this school is near and dear to my heart. I am a graduate of John Carroll University. I also attended Cleveland State University where I earned a Master's Degree in Administration. Teaching children is my passion. Everyday is a new adventure! It is amazing to witness five and six year olds blossom throughout the course of a school year. I believe in fostering a sense of self confidence, where every child develops a love for learning. I am committed to providing fun learning opportunities to address ALL styles of learning, while weaving in activities to engage ALL children. I am a firm believer in collaborating with parents. Parents are definitely a valuable resource.
