Mrs. Brushwood

My name is Tiffany Brushwood and this will be my ninth year as a first grade teacher at Radio Park.  I love, love, love Radio Park elementary.  I was once a student teacher here; I am so grateful we made our way back to State College and that Radio Park became my home again. 
My teaching background includes three years teaching third grade at Twin Ridge Elementary in Mt. Airy, MD and nine years working in the field of educational technology with a company called Global Academics (based out of Annapolis, MD) where I was able to work with teachers and students of all grade levels; Pre-K through 12th. This was a rewarding experience because I was able to travel to schools all over Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington DC, and Virginia. This position even provided a rare opportunity to work with teachers in Jamaica in an effort to advance their use of technology in the classroom.
My husband Brian and I grew up in different areas of Pennsylvania and met at Penn State many years ago.  We have three beautiful children: Abby is a senior and Cooper is a sophomore at State High. Our youngest son, Aaron, is a 7th grader at Park Forest Middle School. We also have a twelve-year-old dog, Bear, who we adopted from PAWS.
Our family enjoys cheering one another on at sporting events and playing outdoors. Abby is a gymnast at Centre Elite. Cooper plays football and lacrosse. Aaron plays football and lacrosse like his big brother, but also enjoys wrestling. We enjoy finding new adventures both here in State College and in our travels. We are a true blue Penn State family and attend a variety of PSU sporting events. 
I think 1st grade is one of the most exciting years in elementary school. You will do SO much growing this year. I feel so lucky to have a front row seat!
