Learn about our new teachers:
I currently live in Newburyport with my husband, 4 little girls and our 2 pups. All my girls have gone to MMNS and the youngest will be completing her last year starting this September!
I grew up on Long Island, NY and graduated from New York Institute of Technology with a Masters in School Counseling. While working towards this degree I worked in a special needs program through one of the public schools in NY and absolutely loved my job.
Once I moved to MA in 2007, I worked at a school for children with Autism. I was there for almost 4.5 years and left once my first daughter was born.
I am excited to get back into the teaching field since 3 out of my 4 girls are now in public school full time and working with kids is something I have always loved doing!
I have lived in Newburyport since 2010 with my husband and our four kids. Although I grew up in the Berkshires, moved to Boston to attend college at Northeastern and fell in love with this end of the state.
At NU, I attended the five-year co-op program which allowed me to work and take classes. This opportunity was when I realized that I love being in the classroom. I graduated NU in 2003 with my bachelors in American Sign Language Interpreting. After college, I began my career as a Special Education teacher and have been teaching kids of all ages and disabilities. Along the way I received my M.Ed. in Severe Disabilities and my C.A.G.S. as a Reading Specialist.
I’m very excited to be working here at Mrs. Murray’s - it’s a big part of my family’s life and a wonderful community.
Working with children brings me so much joy and I feel very fortunate to have joined the MMNS team. I am so excited to spend the upcoming year exploring, learning and having fun with the children.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and over the years I have worked with children from ages 2 through 16 in various capacities including day care, instructional support, special education and social emotional learning. I am in the process of receiving my certification through the MA Department of Early Education and Care.
My husband and I have lived in Newburyport for 26 years. We have a teenaged son and cockapoo, both which keep us very busy. Together we enjoy camping, good food and travelRead More
