About Mrs. Carter

  • I grew up in Hicksville with my parents, my older brother John, and my younger sister Danielle. I went to high school at Holy Trinity and went to college at Hofstra University. I earned my BA in Physics and my MA in Secondary Education for Science. I started working at Herricks in September of 2005. Before Herricks, I worked as a substitute teacher in the Bellmore-Merrick district. 

    My husband and I welcomed our first child - our daughter Emily -  into the world on June 22, 2013.  Our son, Jeremy, was born on June 10, 2015.  Our children are our pride and joy.

    I love to travel! I recently completed my life-goal of visiting all 50 states.  Now I'm on to the next goal: visitng all seven continents - only three to go! 

    I enjoy reading fairytales.  My favorite books are Stardust and The Princess Bride.  (Both of which are also two of my favorite movies!)  I am also a big Harry Potter fan!  I love Disney movies - my favorite is Sleeping Beauty.  My favorite foods are french fries and ice cream, and my favorite colors are pink and green.

    I've wanted to be a teacher my entire life.  My parents set up a chalk board and school desks in my basement and I would teach my little sister everything I knew. 

    I am looking forward to working with my students and their parents this school year. 

    Have a great year, everyone!
