Meet Mrs. de CarleI love teaching second grade! It is an exciting year where each student bursts forward in academic, individual and social areas.I began working in the district as a paraprofessional in 2001 when my youngest son entered kindergarten. I loved it so much that after a couple of years I chose to go back to school and become a teacher. In 2005 I was an intern (student teacher) in Mr. Kleine's first grade classroom at Easterly Parkway. In 2006, I started teaching second grade at EP in room 247.From 2013-2016, I was released from my classroom to work in collaboration with the Penn State University/ State College Area School District Professional Development School. During this time, I supervised interns in a number of elementary schools throughout the district. I co-taught a classroom management class and spring seminar. Throughout this experience I learned about theory, saw theory put into practice, and participated in research.In 2016, I returned to Easterly Parkway. I love teaching and working with students. Everyday I learn something from the students and the colleagues that I work with.When not in school, I spend time with my husband and our dog. Our two boys graduated from State College High in 2013 and 2014. They both lead active lives. Mackenzie is a civil engineering for a consulting firm in Boston. Alex is attending Fanshawe College in London, Ontario where he is studying Video Game Design and Development. My husband and I try and visit them as often as possible.Our family moved to State College in 1997. We love living in Happy Valley. We enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, and boating in the area. We also enjoy Penn State hockey and football. When we are not outside I am reading, cooking, or spending time with our dog.I believe in a strong home-school connection. Please feel free to contact me with questions and concerns. I look forward to getting to know your child and you.
