Degrees and Certifications:
I attended Geneva College in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, where I earned my degree in Middle Level Education with a concentration in ELA.
I am a small town girl who has always felt called to and passionate about teaching. I believe that reading and writing are a couple of skills that can be developed and then used as outlets for all types of emotion and in all seasons of life. My husband and I just up and moved to Jacksonville out of no where to pursue what we believe to be the calling of our lives. We left all we know and love back in PA...including our fur babies, Pippin and Panda. I love to teach, and look forward to this year as I will set and meet new goals along with each of my students. Adventure awaits!
In PA I was blessed with several teaching experiences. I had the opportunity to teach 8th grade Reading and English Honors. I also taught 5th grade reading and held a brief long-term substitute postion as a 7th/8th grade science teacher. I am looking forward to my second year at JCMS as your 6th grade ELA teacher!!!
