About Me...

I am thrilled to be part of the 5th grade team at Juniata.  For two years, I enjoyed working as the Americorps Teacher here and helping students improve their reading skills.  Before coming to Juniata, I had a variety of teaching experiences that include subbing, teaching preschool, and working in private schools.  I taught 5th grade for fourteen years in private school as well as science to students in grades 4-8.


My education began at St. Francis University where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education.  Since then, I have earned master’s degrees in educational leadership from Edinboro University of PA and in special education from Saint Joseph’s University.  I love both teaching and learning, and strive to learn something new every day!


Teaching 5th grade is the perfect fit for me, and I am excited to help our young Jaguars have a successful school year!
