Welcome to my teacher website! 




Hello!  Here's a little background information about myself.  I graduated from Clarion University of PA with a dual Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary and Special Education.  I've added Middle Level Mathematics and Middle Level Language Arts certifications.  I began teaching at Punxsutawney Area Middle School during the 2008/2009 school year.  I taught 6th grade learning support classes then and co-taught 7th grade reading, 6th and 8th grade English.  I taught autistic support at Punxsutawney Area Middle School in 2009/2010 and 2010/2011 school year.  I received my Master's degree in literacy and my reading specialist certification from IUP in 2011. 2011/2012 was my first year at Jenks Hill teaching 2nd grade.  This will be my 6th year teaching 2nd grade here and I am looking forward to working with all of you!

I have 3 wonderful children.  My oldest daughter, Karen, is 16 years old and is in seventh grade and is taking culinary classes at Lenape.  My son, Nicky, is 12, and attends West Shamokin High School.  Alana, my youngest daughter, is 9 years old, and she attends Skannock Elementary and is in 4th grade this year.

Things I enjoy:

  • playing with my kids
  • reading
  • jogging 
  • leading P90X Live classes and getting ready to get certified in PiYo
