All About Me
I grew up in North Carolina and have lived in Pennsylvania for my entire adult life. I live in Schnecksville with my husband John and our two children Ethan and Madeline. I knew I wanted to be a teacher even as a child. I am living my life's dream! I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Methodist University in North Carolina where I also received my certification as a Reading Specialist. I later received my Master's degree in Educational Leadership from Lehigh University. I taught in the Bangor Area School district for 6 years as a reading specialist and a fifth grade teacher. I then began teaching at Weisenberg Elementary.
I have taught at Weisenberg for ten years. Teaching third grade at Weisenberg is amazing! I love the community spirit and families at Weisenberg and feel blessed that my own children attended here. These children truly make my heart sing!. I believe that a teacher's highest calling is to show "the wonder of the world" through learning . I enjoy doing this as a teacher. I just completed a one year educational sabbatical where I earned a Writing and Literacy specialist certificate through my graduate studies at Penn State. I learned so much about writing, reading and technology. I am excited to apply my new knowledge in our third grade classroom this school year.
Outside of school, I enjoy reading, traveling, playing tennis and completing volunteer work. This year, I began to take harp lessons and love playing for family and friends. Perhaps I will play for my students this school year. I think it is important to always grow and learn. I practice this daily in my personal and professional life and hope to inspire my students to do the same.
