My introduction to the State College Area School District came in the 2004-2005 school year. I interned through The Pennsylvania State University Professional Development School (PDS) in first grade at Lemont Elementary (now Spring Creek Elementary).
The following year, I began teaching fourth grade at Houserville Elementary (now Spring Creek Elementary). I've been teaching in that capacity ever since, fortunate to work in a dedicated learning community of students, parents, and staff.
Prior to entering the field of education, I held positions in human resources and retail management.
