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, Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Penn State and my Masters Degree in Education from Saint Francis 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. Upon the closing of W-J, I was fortunate enough to return to where it started for me, Juniata. I am teaching the Science and Social Studies curriculum in 6th grade this year!
