AnnMarie is a graduate of Hofstra University with a major in English and a minor in Secondary Education. She started out her teaching career in the Bronx, teaching High School English. She took eight years off to stay at home with her 3 children, and eventually went back to school to get her Lead Teacher Certificate in Early Childhood Education. She then went on to open up her own preschool at her church in Tolland, CT. Four years later her husband’s job took the family to San Antonio, Texas. They were there for eight years, and during this time AnnMarie went back to the classroom in Texas and taught Middle School and 4th grade. The family is finally back home in New York and AnnMarie is very excited to be teaching preschool again and to be a part of the amazing family at SCCNS! “Children are not a distraction from more important work. They are the most important work.” -C.S. Lewis
