Class of 2000
Teacher, Howell Township Public Schools

typical day: I teach reading, math, and all the other subjects to first-graders. At 8:15 each morning, I greet my sixteen smiling students at the door. First-graders are amazing creatures with wonderful minds. I love teaching, playing educational games, and helping my students to be the best that they can be.

exciting news: After graduation, I spent five years in Los Angeles producing E! True Hollywood Story, Travel Channel Secrets and a show for Discovery Channel. I attended Cal. State University - Dominquez Hills for my teaching credential and began teaching middle school in South Los Angeles. Now that I'm back in New Jersey, I have met two alumni that teach in the same district. Although I'm not in the entertainment field anymore, I am a co-advisor for the Aldrich Broadcasting Company at my school, where fifth-graders are the news anchors for our live broadcast of video announcements. The kids love it!
