Qualifications & Experience

I've had great teachers and mentors in the course of my lifetime, and I've had my antennas out, looking to learn wherever I may travel to and through whomever I may encounter- in fact, I believe there are lessons to be learned everywhere and that there are no chance encounters.
My education in New York City's public schools exposed me at any early age to educators, who were interested in more than receiving a pay check out of life- I want to be THAT teacher for ALL of my students; I care about making a positive difference and usually do so!
