"Our greates glory is not in never failing, but rising everytime we fail.
I have been an educator since 1981. My first twelve years of teaching were at private schools in New York and Pennsylvania. During those years I taught second, first, and fifth grades. In 1993, I was hired by the Pleasant Valley School District. I was at Polk for 21 years where I taught first and second grades. In 2014, I joined the staff of PVE and continue to teach second grade. I truly love working in this district and in the West End. Pleasant Valley's faculty, staff, students, and parents have become part of my family. Pleasant Valley School District has become my home and I can truly say I am PV PROUD! I look forward to working with you and your child to make second grade an enjoyable and learning filled year. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
