The increasing level of diversity in American society makes it necessary for individuals to broaden their understanding and acceptance of similarities and differences. Contributing members of society will be expected to use a myriad of technological, social, economic, political, and academic skills to problem solve, make decisions, and cope. Schools have a major role in helping to build and refine the skills individuals need to function in the complex and multi-faceted society of the future.

I hold a master's degree in School Guidance Counseling from Long Island University, C.W. Post, and a master's degree in School Administration and Supervision from the College of New Rochelle. I earned a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and discovered my passion for education at State University of New York College at Old Westbury.
