After graduating from Southern Regional High School, I attended Georgian Court College in Lakewood, New Jersey. There, I earned a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Education Degree. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and a Masters Degree in the same area with a concentration in writing. I was a classroom teacher for 28 years teaching 1st grade. I have been teaching Basic Skills for the last six years and really love it! This marks my 34th year teaching at the Lillian M. Dunfee School. I enjoy teaching younger children because they have so much enthusiasm and are so eager to learn. I live in Barnegat with my husband, John and our three children, Caitlin, Ryan and Sean.
