Robin offers a unique approach to teaching by not only teaching students curriculum in an engaging and motivating way, her integration of social and emotional skill building, as well as knowledge of content, provides guidance to prepare students to be successful learners. She grew up playing sports and was featured in the state newspaper for being the top three-point shooter for her high school basketball team. She attended Florida Atlantic University and graduated with her Bachelor’s in English Literature with a concentration in British Literature. Robin has worked with the New York State Department of Education to implement accommodations and modifications for students on the spectrum.
Before Fusion, Robin worked at a school for special needs students, which jumpstarted her passion for working with individuals with disabilities. She created curriculum that integrated individuals into the community to empower them with their social and emotional learning. Robin also started an athletic club at the school that enabled participants to learn how to exercise and adopt a healthy and active lifestyle. Robin currently attends Touro University of Manhattan and is pursuing a graduate degree in Special Education.
Her love for animals has guided her to adopt a vegan lifestyle and she is a cat mom to three black cats. In her free time, you can find her up in the mountains hiking, skiing, running marathons and volunteering at her local animal shelter.
Robin is ecstatic to be a part of Fusion Family Long Island and looking forward to growing and learning during this exciting new transition in her life.
