I have been a teacher in the Academy of Finance at Passaic County Technical Institute for 4 years. This September I will begin my 5th year teaching in the program. I also guide my students through the NAF Bank on It tournament which I had a student participate in the final four at the NAF conference last year. I also advise our students on our Consumer bowl team which focuses primarily on consumer law which students have held the county title for 10 years. I also am one of the teachers who gave students the platform to make their financial literacy fair a school wide event. I take such pride in teaching our students because I am also a product of the Academy of Finance. I graduated right from PCTI in the year 2004.
On top of being a teacher, I am a full-time mom of two beautiful girls and also coach our women’s volleyball team.
