I have been lucky to be part of Westport Central School in many capacities since March 2013. Student teaching with Mrs. Bubbins' 2nd Grade was a thrilling and life changing experience, prompting me to stay despite a commute from Plattsburgh. Upon graduation from SUNY Plattsburgh, I served as a substitute teacher throughout the building. With a bachelor's degree in Childhood Education and master's in Special Education, I am certified from birth to Grade 6 education. Other teaching experience at WCS includes long term substituting for Business, 1st Grade, and the Reading Specialist. As I begin a second year as the 5th Grade teacher, I am excited to work with another great class. Since the first day, the kindness and support of the school staff, students, and community have made me feel thankful to be part of such an incredible school district.
