    I've been a teacher in the Northeastern School District since 1997. 

    Throughout the years I’ve taught second, third, and sixth grades, 

    finally settling in fifth grade! I received my Bachelors degree from

    Penn State University, a Masters in Elementary Education and a 

    Reading Specialist Certification from Millersville University,

    and earned +60 credits from Millersville, Penn State, and Wilkes.


    I have two wonderfully, incredible children...Sophia and Garrett!

    while finding ways to maintain their interests in learning. We all learn in a variety of styles. In

    and independently.
