Greetings from the Jersey Shore!
I grew up in the "Ocean Acres" part of Manahawkin, and graduated from Southern Regional in 1995. I never moved out of the area since I love the beaches on LBI; and currently live in Waretown.
In 2002, I graduated from Stockton College with a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Psychology, and also focused in science and anthropology courses. Two years later, I decided to work at the Stafford Township School District as a substitute teacher. I stayed at the Intermediate School as their long-term (permanent) substitute and detention teacher.
I graduated with my first Masters of Arts in Education (MAED) from University of Phoenix in 2008.
Eventually, I decided to enroll in the library science program in 2012, and graduated with my second Master's degree in Library Science from Drexel University in 2014. I focused in the School Library Information Media Specialist (SLIMS) Certification at Drexel so I can work in schools. Yes, that means I am a certified Media Specialist, or you can just call me a School Librarian.
I'm a professional member with the New Jersey Association for School Librarians (NJASL).
In my spare time, I read (a lot) of books, and write book reviews for publishing companies. I'm also assisting my mom with a family geneology project which involves lots of research. Besides looking at books, I do other activities, such as camping, hiking or kayaking with family. Oh, and I love to travel! Been to Mexico twice.
