Hello! I am excited to be your child’s 6th grade teacher. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a 2006 graduate of Penn State Altoona with a major in Elementary Education K-6. This also makes me a HUGE Penn State football fan!!!! I have been teaching 6th grade with the AASD for 10 years. For my first 7 years I taught at Pleasant Valley Elementary, and then I transitioned to Juniata. Go Jaguars!!! I live in Altoona with my 2 sons, Bowen- aged 15 and Tanner- aged 10. I am an avid football fan, my favorite team is the Steelers, however, my favorite player is Peyton Manning. I look forward to getting to know each of my students and to helping them learn and grow throughout their 6th grade year.
