"It's okay to make mistakes. Mistakes are our teachers - they help us to learn."

- John Bradshaw

I have always wanted to be a teacher. I just took a few side trips on my journey to get to the classroom.

Prior to enrolling in the Certification program at Moravian College I have had several careers, each one adding valuable life skills that will no doubt come in handy in the classroom.

I graduated from Cedar Crest College with a degree in Communications for the Media (along with minors in History and Theatrical Design). My degree led to work as a radio station DJ (Q100). I have sold advertising space for a large New Jersey daily newspaper, and spent several years at AT&T Bell Laboratories as a Purchasing Agent. (Imagine contacting Taipai, China for pricing when the internet hasn't been invented yet!) I also worked in the marketing and public relations department for a computer company (ECCS), where I would write articles for industry journals, create news releases, and arrange for participation in industry trade shows.

My favorite side trip to the classroom has been my family. As the proud mother of two boys, I was a stay-at-home mom for over ten years. All that hands-on training with my boys (and their friends) has given me a world of practical experience that will be beneficial in an elementary classroom, especially in areas of classroom management, and creative instruction.
