One of My Favorite Poems

If a child lives with criticism, he/she learns to condemn.
If a child lives with ridicule, he/she learns to be shy.
If a child lives with tolerance, he/she learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement, he/she learns to be confident.
If a child lives with praise, he/she learns to be appreciative.
If a child lives with acceptance, he/she learns to love.
If a child lives with approval, he/she learns to like themselves.
If a child lives with security, he/she learns to have faith in one self and those around them.
If a child lives with friendliness, he/she learns the world is a nice place in which to live.
Author- Dorothy Law Nolte

The students in my room are always encouraged and praised!

I love teaching pre-kindergarten at Our Lady of Mercy!  In the past, I taught first grade, third grade and pre-school in NYC public and Long Island private schools. My certification is a New York State license in nursery through sixth grade.  I received a  Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Education from St. John's University.  My passion is teaching children to have a positive self esteem, make good choices, to love learning and love God. May God always bless my students and their families!  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at
