• Meet Mrs. W
    Welcome to Gifted Support!  I am very excited to be working at Park Forest Elementary school again this year. Prior to working in Gifted, I taught 5th grade at Radio Park Elementary for five years. I began my career in education teaching 4th grade and was a math resource teacher in Charles County, Maryland. I love living in Centre County and received my Bachelor's degree at Penn State University. I also have my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction and my Gifted Endorsement. In March 2015, my husband and I welcomed our son Luke and have loved watching him grow and explore. We are excited to add to our family again in December.
    When I am not teaching, you will find me playing with my son, doing something active or with my nose in a book. I am quite passionate about reading and I love to talk to students about the books they are reading and to receive recommendations for new books.  Check out my Mrs. W's Reads link to see what books I have been reading lately and my new favorites. Please let me know what books you think I've missed/need to check out next!
    I am so excited to be working with students in grades K-5!  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Email is the best way to reach me as I check it multiple times a day. My email address is jlw33@scasd.org.
