    A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME...

    I started teaching in the State College Area School District in the fall of 1995.  My years as an educator have been spent working with both fourth and fifth graders.  I enjoy the enthusiasm and creativity of this age group tremendously!

    When I am not in the classroom, you can find me with my fifteen-year-old son, Ian, and my eleven-year-old daughter, Kate, both of whom the kids hear many stories about and see photos of them on occasion.   Speaking of stories...I love books and hold a Master's degree in Children's Literature from Penn State University.  When I'm not spending time with family and friends, I am usually immersed in the world of a book!   Literature holds a high place in my classroom, as well.  I believe in the power of stories to transform the reader and that all children are authors who have important stories to tell.
