 I am privileged to work as an adunct lecturer in the Education Department at Siena College.  As an alumni of Siena (class of 2002), it is an honor to return in the capacity of professor.  I graduated Siena with a degree in English Education, and certified to teach grades 5-12.  After teaching English Language Arts in the Bethlehem Central School District for five years, I served as an Assistant Principal of Slingerlands Elementary School and currently, as Principal of Voorheesville Elementary School.  I earned a Masters of Science in Curriculum and Instructional Technology through the University at Albany, a Masters of Science in Leadership through Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership through the Sage Colleges.  My dissertation examined the role of principal management practices, and their influence on morale and student achievement.  I am also published numerous times in the New York State Middle School Association In Transitions Journal, Principal Magazine, and ASCD.  I am very pleased to teach courses in Adolescent Education and MIddle School Theory and Practice.

My Siena Experience

My Teaching Philosophy

 To ensure all students have an interactive learning experience that is a powerful blend of pedagogical theory and applicable practice in the secondary classroom.

What I Love About Siena

 I am a proud Siena alumni (class of 2002), and am proud to return to the place where my career began, and hopefully contribute to such a stellar program rooted in Franscican ideals.

My Favorite Courses to Teach

 While I love teaching all classes, Adolescence and Schooling and Teaching and Learning in the Middle School are my areas of expertise.  They also capture my areas of publication and writing.
