I began my teaching career at St. Edmund's Elementary in the Diocese of Brooklyn. My first teaching assignment included Jr High Science in Grades 6-8. While at St Edmund's, I taught 6th Grade Reading and Religion. After my teaching career started, I was blessed with a marriage and I had 2 healthy children. I decided to stay home with my children for 10 years. I ventured back to the classroom eventually where I taught middle school science at St Edward the Confessor School in Syosset NY. During my time at St. Edward's, I also developed a science enrichment program for Grades Pre-K to Grade 5.
