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 am currently attending Point Park University to earn my masters in curriculum and instruction.
I began my elementary teaching career completing long term substitute teaching positions within first and fifth grade. I then went on to become a certified reading specialist. I have had the pleasure to serve with AmeriCorps, and I am very excited to plant my roots here in Juniata! Go Jaguars!
