Being kind is what we all should do.  I embrace our common mission to inspire, prepare, and empower our students to lead fulfilled lives as compassionate, productive and engaged citizens.
My passion to help others started while an undergrad in Albany during the 1990s.  As a teenage volunteer at Hackett Middle School, I soon realized teaching students was a learning experience and the following day changed my major to English Education.   As a young teacher, reading student poems, stories and journals, I knew more could be done to help tomorrow's children.  I soon decided to practice school counseling.  Twenty years later, still climbing the next rung on my career ladder, I have found my dream job as current school counselor at Lawrence Avenue.
