Other Work Experience
Before I began my career as a teacher, I was a Director of Marketing for the Southgate Plaza for over ten years. Throughout my ten years at Southgate Plaza, I was given many responsibilities that greatly enhanced my skills today including planning and coordinating special events and advertising promotions, and developing and implementing a marketing campaign of $500,000 annually. In addition, I was also the community liaison between the Southgate Plaza and the West Seneca Central School District participating in several school-to-work programs. This experience gave me the opportunity to build positive relationships with many students, teachers, and school administrators, which immediately opened my eyes to a career in education.
