 I have a total of 19 years in education.  I am in my second year with the PreK program, I was at Fowler for 6 years as Math/Science Specialist with the Liberty Partnerships Program through OCC), and Lincoln Middle for 2 years where I managed the In School Suspension  Program.  Prior to that I was a Program Specialist for Dropout Prevention and a high school Math teacher in Palm Beach County Florida for 10 years total.  I am three courses away from acquiring my NYS certification in B-6 and Sp Ed at LeMoyne College, and am looking forward to continuing with the SCSD for the remainder of my career as an educator.  
Personally I am married and a mother of three great young adults (Matthew 23 is a Physicist with Northrup Gruman in Baltimore area , Megan 21 is going into her senior year in the Nursing Program at Brockport, and Sam 18 will be entering his Sophomore year at Hobart as a Math/Computer Science major).  I love all things summer, including boating, skiing, swimming, and baseball as well as reading and spending time at our camp on Otisco Lake.

Hi! My name is Ms. Erin.  I grew up in the Syracuse area.  I attended St. Bonaventure University for undergrad and received a degree in Elementary Education.  I received my Master’s in Special Education at Le Moyne College. I’ve been teaching for 17 years at various grades; Pre-k, k-3 self-contained, 2nd, 2nd inclusion, 3rd inclusion and 5th grade. All of my teaching has been in an urban district- 5 years in Yonkers Public Schools and 12 years in the Syracuse City School District. I live with my husband, two children and my dog.
I enjoy working with children to help them reach their full potential.  I look forward to teach your child Montessori.
