Mager

 

Where did you go to school?

I went to LIU Post when it was still Long Island University- C.W. Post Campus.

 

How long have you been at Halsey?

I’ve been at Halsey since September 2012.

 

What would you be doing if you were not a teacher?

I’ve ALWAYS wanted to be a teacher, but I would’ve loved to pursue singing/ performing.

 

Why did you get into education?

I became an educator because I always had a passion for helping others. My brother Danny has autism, which inspired me to become a special education teacher. He’s been a driving force for most of my decisions in life, and he helps me be a better person, educator, sibling, and friend.

 

What is your favorite thing about being a teacher?

My favorite thing about being a teacher is seeing my students (who I always call “my kids”) grow, and when something “clicks” it’s amazing seeing that light- bulb moment.

 

Any hobbies or interests that we do not know you would like to share?

I play violin, and am obsessed with all things Disney (including Star Wars and Marvel)! I also love to go hiking and explore National Parks with my daughter Sophia and husband Paul.
