Hi! I’m Mrs. Rittenhouse and I’m so fortunate to have the opportunity to work in the State College Area School District and in particular with you, our Park Forest Community. I’m a former PFE student and State High graduate. In 1991, I graduated Penn State, with a B.S. in Elementary Education and stayed local. I have 25 years guest teaching experience in the SCASD and I've held several long term positions. I married my high school sweetheart, Eric Rittenhouse, also a State High graduate. We have six children and our family fur pets are Daisy Mae & Luna.
Our family lived in Costa Rica while attending language school, for six months, and then we lived in Cochabamba Bolivia, the second poorest country in South America. We worked with children in prison and those living on the streets.
I enjoy all the seasons. Walking on the beach and collecting seashells in the summer, planting flowers in the spring, baking cookies and snow angels in the winter, and camping in the fall.
I'm looking forward to growing and learning together. We will have many special memories full of fun and laughter. I know it's going to be a great year!
