Hello! If your on this page, that probably means your son or daughter has me! Well aren't they just lucky! I am one of 2 math teachers in 4th grade along with being a science teacher as well!
I am an alumnus of the Altoona Area School District graduating in 2009. I then furthered my education at the University of Pennsylvania majoring in Kindergarten and Elementary Education. I will be starting my Masters this school year through Point Park on-line completing this masters program in Athletic Coaching. I am the head coach of Junior High Girl's Volleyball team along with a volunteer assistant for the high school girl's team. In the fall, I am the assistant for the Boy's Volleyball team. I also coach 2 club travel volleyball teams over the winter and early spring.
I have been a full time teacher here at Juniata for 2 years now. I have taught 4th grade both years. Before being a full time teacher, I was a substitute in the district for 2 years. During this time I acted as a long term sub in Kindergarten, 2nd and 4th grade classrooms. I also completed a year long Ameri-corps position as a Middle School Math Teacher at Spring Cove Middle School the after graduating college.
To my students:
If you do not like Penn State, Steelers, Penguins, or Pirates, you better change your team because they are the best and everyone else is not!
Thank You for taking the time to read this wonderful, long, and interesting short bio on myslef :)
