I worked in several Long Island, New York school districts as a central office administrator, teacher, and school building administrator. My more than 35 years in education has also included a 16-year-stint as a member of a non-public school board as well as the leadership of a nursery school. I am a graduate of Queens College and I earned a master’s degree from Teachers College, Columbia University, and a doctorate in education from Hofstra University. My doctoral dissertation focused on the importance of caring as a factor in successful schools.
