Back to School Night Video-


 I graduated from Buffalo State College with a Bachelor of Arts in French and Italian. I was fortunate to live and study in Siena Italy and received a scholarship for French study at Laval University in Quebec.  I taught middle school and high school students both of those languages along with Spanish for nine years before staying home to raise my 2 sons. When my daughter turned 2 I took a part time job teaching all three languages to pre-school students through the sixth grade for thirteen years. 

I am thrilled to be a part of the Jackson family teaching Italian which was always my favorite language! I enjoy working with students of all ages and look forward every day to inspiring students to speak Italian. We will also study the culture and geography of Italy in great detail during this semester. It is my hope and dream that students will want to travel to Italy and see first hand why I love it so much!
