I worked in education for over 46 years. I began teaching before I had taken any education courses, based on a demand needs exemption in Massachusetts. While teaching four different 7th and 8th grade math and science classes, I took the necessary courses at Boston State College and was certified within my first six months.

My background experience is broad, being certified in biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics and general science. I have taught all of these subjects and have also taught at elementary, middle school and high school levels, in urban, suburban and rural settings and in both public and parochial schools. In addition, I have previously served as head of the science department for four years at a suburban school. In the past, extracurricular activities I have advised have included volunteer service clubs, chemistry teams, and Dungeons & Dragons clubs each in more than one school.

If not for the complications that the COVID-19 pandemic introduced to education, I would still be teaching. I retired in 2020, teaching chemistry and 6th grade science at Classical Magnet School in Hartford, CT.
