I have been a Humanities teacher, community service coordinator, and school administrator for the past twenty-two years. I have obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy, a Master of Arts degree in Humanities, and a Master of Science degree in Administration, Policy, and Urban Education from Fordham University in New York City. I am also a poet, musician, and an amateur nature photographer. I am a person deeply committed to social justice causes, nature, and the environment. First and foremost, I am a teacher. Teaching has always been my first love and passion. Shalom.
