Hello! Thank you for visiting my page!
I started my college education at Juniata College. I was recruited to be on the Track & Field team. After three years, I transferred to Penn State. I graduated from Penn State with a degree in Kindergarten & Elementary Education. This is my 11th year teaching. My career with the Altoona Area School District began in 2006. I was hired as a First Grade teacher at Washington-Jefferson Elementary School. I taught there for 7 years before it closed. Then I moved to Juniata Elementary where I have been teaching First Grade for 4 years.
I LOVE teaching 1st Grade!
I believe that learning should be hands-on, full of content and rigor, creative, and meaningful. Most of all, learning should be FUN! There's nothing I love more than knowing my students don't even realize they're learning because they're having so much fun through the process.
