My goal for my students is
I have been a Bay Area resident for more than 20 years. I moved here from Long Island, New York in 1996. I first started teaching in San Jose in 1997 at Empire Gardens Elementary School. I have worked as a special education teacher in just about every type of setting over the years. I have taught students from Kindergarten to 11th grade. My most enduring passion has been Design Thinking which I learned at a Stanford University seminar, and then practiced at Design Tech High School. I am very excited to be here at Mountain View at Crittenden Middle School. The staff and the students have been very kind and helpful to me.
