Greetings students & familes,

I'd like to briefly introduce myself. I have been a High School English teacher for 21 years now, teaching for 3 years in The Bronx and for 18 years in Yonkers. I have taught all 4 years of High school multiple times.  My main passions are books & music and my top teaching skill and focus is writing of every shape and form. I look forward to working with my students this year on their ELA skills and am proud to join the teaching staff here at Lincoln High School for the 2021-2022 school year.


This year I will be teaching English 9 & Writing Studio I with the following schedule:


Period 1- English 9- Room 339

Period 3- Writing Studio I- Room 318

Period 4- Writing Studio I- Room 318

Period 6- Writing Studio I- Room 333

Period 7- Writing Studio I- Room 339

My after-school help day is on Wednesdays, 2:39 - 3:15 PM in Room 305 (Back Room- Yearbook Office)
