K-5 STEM Teacher

I am a K-5 STEM teacher at the George L. Catrambone Elementary School in Long Branch NJ.  I have been teaching for 21 years in many positions in my district, but have found my passion in recent years by incorporating climate change education into our school curriculum  As an avid believer and supporter of environmental education and sustainability in schools, I believe we can empower our students to become informed and contributing citizens equipped to bring their ideas and solutions to the table to solve problems affecting their lives, their communities, and the world.  I wholeheartedly believe that our students have the power to change the world!
