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.
