An Idea Is Born !

“Reach for the skies!” I remember hearing these iconic words the first time my aunt took me to see Toy Story when I was just a child. For me, it was more than a simple catchphrase; it was a life motto. My aunt, along with the other strong women in my life, encouraged me to always reach for the skies and supported me every step along my journey to fulfill my dreams. It was with this supportive spirit in heart that I chose to pursue a future in education and mentoring of the next generation.

Starting my career in a preschool disabled classroom, assisting with students on the autism spectrum and diagnosed with Down’s Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy, I was given a unique gift that helped me fully understand that all people are capable of success if only given the compassion and support they require. I carried this lesson with me throughout my career, teaching in districts from Haddon Heights and Upper Township to Wildwood and Woodbine.

No matter the age or grade; no matter the personal life challenges; no matter the location; I have seen children grow and succeed beyond their wildest imaginations.

With more than a decade of classroom experience behind me, coupled with my time as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for children in the child protection program and training in crisis prevention and behavior assistance, I am proud to be a member of Seashells and Pearls,

With your help and donations we can continue this work and lift kids to new heights. Together we can make a difference. Together we can improve the lives of children across Cape May County by providing a strong foundation in education and mentoring for the future. Together we can go...TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!
