Welcome to 4th Grade at Juniata Elementary! A little about me! I am married with 4 children, three girls and one boy! Our lives are busy, but fun and eventful. I enjoy watching my children’s sporting events, traveling with my family, and swimming!
I began my career in education right here at Juniata Elementary, first, as a part-time Teacher-Assistant in the Life Skills program, then as a full time Title One Teacher Aide. I received my Associate Degree in Business Administration from Penn State Altoona, enjoyed and learned from many people at Juniata, and was inspired to return to school to pursue my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. After receiving my degree from The Pennsylvania State University, I began teaching at Washington and Jefferson in the 6th grade. I have taught 4th and 5th grade as well, and a year as Literacy Instructor. During that time I received my Master's Degree in Education from Saint Francis University. Upon the closing of W-J, I was fortunate enough to return to where it started for me, Juniata!!! I couldn’t be happier to be here! 4th grade is a fun and exciting place with high expectations for learning. It is my goal, with the help of parents, grandparents and /or caregivers, to help your child succeed at the highest level!
