Welcome! I am one of the third grade Language Arts teachers at the Punxsutawney Area Elementary School. Previously, I taught second grade for several years at Longview Elementary School, prior to the consolidation. I am very excited to embark on this new adventure with our district!
I enjoy spending time with my husband and four daughters, raising our dogs, and creating things. I am very active in my church, I'm a musician, and an antique enthusiast. I enjoy photographing and seeing new places. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, as well as my Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Gannon University.
I look forward to getting to know my students and their families, as we venture into an exciting year at the new PAES! Please feel free to email or call me at school to arrange a time to meet and discuss your child's success and needs in Grade 3!
