Hello! I love teaching Kindergarten and creating a classroom atmosphere that promotes thinking, hard work, and thoughtfulness!  I strive to nurture the many wonderful aspects of children - asking questions, reading for enjoyment, recognizing feelings, and never giving up!

I am a proud graduate from Richland High School. I then went to the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown to obtain my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Spanish. After graduation, I accepted a position teaching first grade in the Meyersdale Area School District. The following year, I taught Kindergarten at Cougar Elementary in Manassas Park, Virginia. I then accepted a 4th grade position at Richland Elementary. I moved back to Kindergarten after a year in 4th and have been in this position ever since. I greatly enjoy continuing my education and I obtained my Master's Degree in Literacy with a Reading Specialist Certificate through Clarion University.
