I grew up in a small farming town in Connecticut and when I reflect upon my journey from childhood to the present, there has been a common theme that has existed throughout my life; it is my passion for movement and teaching others how to find enjoyable ways to engage in a lifetime of activity.
If you were to ask me, “What is your favorite activity Mrs. Wilbur?”, I would be hard pressed to choose just one, because there are so many things that I equally enjoy doing such as going for runs, walking my dogs, climbing trees, going out on the boat, swimming in the ocean, working in my garden, playing ultimate Frisbee…I could go on and on! However, there is one lifetime activity that takes first place, and it is hiking mountains! There is something special about exploring a trail, never knowing what could be around the next bend, and finally after all of your hard work, you are rewarded with a breathtaking view from the top. I have hiked mountains all over the US and Canada. Although my favorite place to play is in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York, which was introduced to me when I was an undergraduate student at SUNY Cortland.
I received my Bachelor of Science in Education from SUNY Cortland, in Cortland, NY (1999) and my Master of Science in Education from Dominican College, in Orangeburg, NY (2002).
I am proud to share that I have over 14 years of professional teaching experience, which has led me on many teaching adventures in both public and private schools across the United States and even in other countries. I am thankful every day for the time I have dedicated to students of all ages because each experience I have had has shaped me as a professional, and I am looking forward to sharing my time with the students of C.E. Williams Middle School!
