I am currently an elementary school Reading Specialist for the Lindenhurst School District. I have taught second grade, fourth grade, as well as graduate and undergraduate literacy courses for Dowling and Brooklyn Colleges. I am an active member of Lindenhurst Rotary and a former Trustee of the Lindenhurst Memorial Library Board. I obtained grants for three consecutive years to run my Read to Your Baby program at the library in which I educated parents on the benefits of reading aloud to their children. Each family left with a bag filled with children's books.
My husband and I have three grown children, Erica, Kurt, and Brett; and one witty five year old grandson, Dylan.
