White Plains High School
I am beginning my 7th year teaching at White Plains High School and I'm very happy to be a part of the district. I have over 13 years experience teaching Biology, Science Research, Chemistry, and Forensics. I recently obtained my teaching certification for "Gifted & Talented" students. I am also very proud to announce that I was awarded the Regeneron STEM Teaching Fellows through the STEM Leadership Center, and completed the required online classes in STEM programming in 2016. The summer of 2016 I worked as an intern at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals in Tarrytown, where I obtained several hands on experiences as a researcher. It was a very valuable experience and I've been able to pass some of my newly obtained knowledge on to my research students.
I'd like to thank the administration, teachers, parents and students for the incredible support I've received over the years
