About Me
About Me: 

I was born in Italy and immigrated to the United States in 1987.  I had just turned 14 year old when I left Italy.  I did not speak any English when I first moved to the United States, and my family did not have much.  I love working at Irish Elementary--escuela bilingue because I know from experience the time, determination, and hard work it takes to learn another language, and to learn how to navigate a different culture.  Furthermore, I also know what it means not to have much.   I believe that no matter where each of us comes from and no matter what our past experiences are, with hard work, caring  support and determination, we can grow and achieve anything we set our minds to.   Each of has a purpose and strengths we can contribute in this life.  We just need to identify what that purpose and those strengths are for each of us.  My job as a teacher is not just to teach academics, but also to encourage each of my students to find their purpose and their strengths and to believe that they can grow and achieve anything they set their minds to.  

Educational Background: 

I started teaching in 1999.  I was a preschool special education, bilingual teacher for sixteen years before I became a Kindergarten teacher.  

I have a master's degree in Early Childhood Special Education and Elementary Education.  I also have a bilingual certification in Spanish.

What do you like best about teaching?: 

Interacting with my students and seeing their happy, enthusiastic faces is what I love the best.
