Welcome! I am the Success Academy teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. Success Academy is a chance for students to recover credits they may have lost for a number of reasons. We will utilize the online platform APEX. APEX allows us to work at our own pace. While there is class time in school to work on courses, students are encouraged to work outside school hours as well.
I attended Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY where I earned a dual degree in Literature and Education in 2004. That same year, I started teaching at Bassick High School. Along the way, I also earned a Master of Science degree in Educational Administration. I have taught every grade level of English in Bassick but have found my true passion for credit recovery. I believe in a truly student-centered, student-guided classroom. My ultimate goal is to help each of my students achieve their goals.
