My name is Mrs. Jamie Dening. I have been a member of this wonderful community for over 33 years. I graduated from Remsen in 1995. During my time at Remsen I participated in soccer, softball, volleyball, Cheerleading and band.
Upon graduating from Remsen I pursued a course of study in Liberal Arts and Sciences at MVCC. I developed a passion for the field of Psychology. After completing my degree at MVCC I transferred into the Psychology program at Utica College. I was inducted into the National Honor Society in Psychology, Psi Chi in December of 1999 and graduated in the spring of 2000 with honors, Cum Laude. Additionally, I received a B.A. in Psychology. In the fall of 2000, I was accepted into a graduate program for Special Education at The College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY. In the spring of 2002 I graduated with an M.S. in Special Education Birth-12.
I have been a Special Education Teacher for over 10 years. My experiences have ranged from Pre-K through 12th grade. Prior to accepting a position at Remsen, I have worked for the Utica City School District, Adirondack CSD, Rome City School District (as a term substitute teacher), and Upstate Cerebral Palsy. Each experience I have had has helped shape the educator that I am today.
