I am a graduate of Brooklyn College. I also attended NYU in Madrid. I worked for several years as a case worker/social worker for the Cuban/Haitian Unaccompanied Minors Program. I also worked as a program specialist for the Justice Department/Community Relations Service’s Cuban/Haitian Refugee Program.

Although a licensed teacher, I had not taught in a formal classroom setting. I began work as a substitute teacher to see whether I would enjoy the experience. I did. I loved it, more importantly the kids loved me and was offered a full time position which I accepted. The rest is history…
