Let me take a minute to introduce myself! I grew up in Greenville, PA - about an hour north of Pittsburgh. I attended Penn State and graduated in 2012 with a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. After my junior year at Penn State, I traveled to Ecuador to take TESOL classes and teach English (I would love to go back!). I spent my senior year as a PDS intern in sixth grade at Park Forest Middle School, where I also spent my first year of teaching! Before moving to ESL, I taught fifth grade for four years here at EP. I love being in the ESL classroom!
In my spare time I enjoy reading, spending time with my husband, family, and friends, traveling (my favorite trip is always to the beach!), running, being outdoors, and reading some more.
I'm very passionate about reading - and I hope to share this passion with all of you this year. There is nothing better than the power of a good book! I'm looking forward to our adventures together at Easterly Parkway! I can't wait to meet you all and dive into learning (:
