Why I love teaching at Molloy College
I love teaching at Molloy College because I have the opportunity to get to know my students personally. I most enjoy the interactive experiences of my small classes and the ability to dialogue about current educational issues.
My academic research interests include students with special needs, ELLs and SIFE programs.
What I am working on
I am currently working on two books for the Breaking the Mold series with my co-author Dr. Andrea Honigsfeld. These co-edited books highlight innovative and successful educational practices for the 21st century. We have already published two books in the series which address issues of school instruction and organization as well as preservice and inservice teacher education.
I believe that all children deserve educational opportunities which are equitable, relevant, and challenging. I have dedicated much of my professional life to preparing highly qualified teachers who will impact the next generation of successful students. Please sign up for my Foundations of Education Course!
