Childhood Education

I love to teach because
of those breakthrough moments with a student, when after struggling or being filled with self-doubt, he/she truly understands the material and feels a sense of pride.

My favorite aspects of Adelphi’s program
are the professors with classroom experience and knowledge to share, small class sizes that allow you to get to know your professors and the diversity of professors.

The most important lesson I learned at Adelphi
is that teaching, like anything else, is an art that must be practiced.

I’m passionate about
the children I teach and finding ways to be an effective educator.

I’m most proud of
building the courage to leave a job of 10 years to do something that I truly love.
