I have been working for the New York City Department of Education for many years. Presently, I am a Technology Staff Developer for Region 4. Previously, I was the Resource Room teacher at Grover Cleveland High School in Ridgewood, Queens. In addition, I have held the positions of Acting Assistant Principal, Department Coordinator, Mentor, Compliance Coordinator, Department Senior Advisor, Transition Linkage (School to Career) Coordinator, Mainstream Coordinator, Early Bird Person (setting up substitute and coverage programs), and Grant Writer.
I have been an online instructor for several years, working with Classroom Connect's Connected University and the University of Phoenix.
I have written several grants for my school (alone and on a team) such as "What's Beyond High School, "Get BUSY* for Your Future" (*Businesses Utilizing Successful Youths), "Journalism," and "The Internet Interactive Resource Room." To help others go through the grant writing process with more ease, a colleague and I created a WebQuest on how to write grants called Hooked on Grant Writing. We also created a courseware program called Get a Job!
I am a member of the Society of Mayflower Descendants, Pilgrim Edward Doty Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, National Society Colonial Dames of the XVII Century, National Society Colonial Daughters of the Seventeenth Century. I recently wrote a genealogical reference book entitled National Society Colonial Daughters of the Seventeenth Century Lineage Book: The Centennial Remembrance Edition which was published in 1999 by Gateway Publishing.
