After graduating from Penn Cambria, I attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania where I earned my baccalaureate degree in early childhood and elementary education. In addition to my degree I acquired a concentration in reading and a minor in educational psychology.
I began my teaching career completing long term substitute teaching positions within first and fifth grade. I then went on to become a certified reading specialist. Last year I had the pleasure to serve with AmeriCorps and I am very excited to plant my roots here in Juniata as this is my first year in the district. Go Jaguars!
