Math 5, 6, 7, 8 and Integrated Algebra
I am the 6th grade homeroom teacher and teach Mathematics to grades 5, 6, 7, and 8 as well as Integrated Algebra at St. Augustine School. I graduated from Manhattan College School of Teacher Preparation with a B.S. in Mathematics with a concentration in Computer Science and received my certification in Secondary Education. I received my Masters of Science in Computer Science from Pace University.
After graduation, I was a computer programmer for the Engineering Dept at AT&T. After 9 ½ years, I left the corporate world and began my teaching career. I taught mathematics and computer science at a private school in the Bronx where I was also department head for the Computer Science Department. I taught a computer class and tutored mathematics to low-performing students at the college level. I have been a substitute teacher at St. Augustine’ since 2004. I was the computer teacher during the 2009-2010 school year and have been the mathematics teacher for grades 5, 6, 7, 8 since 2010.
I am very excited about my current teaching position. Mathematics has always been and will continue to be my passion. My goal is to make sure that the children have a strong foundation in mathematics so that they will do well at Saint Augustine’s and at the same time, be well prepared to meet the new challenges of high school. I also want to show the students that mathematics is alive and all around us! I hope to instill a love, not fear, for the subject and perhaps inspire students to pursue the study of mathematics.
Most importantly, through my role at Saint Augustine’s, I strive to teach them to have faith in God and realize that through Him all things are possible. I want them to appreciate the wonderful family we are at Saint Augustine School of which I am so happy to be a part of. And lastly, I want to challenge my students to be the best that they can be and prepare them for all their future endeavors.
