• Born and raised a Jersey Girl, I grew up in Central NJ (yes, it exists) with two bothers, my mom and dad, along with multiple family dogs throughout the years. Working at the preschool I once attended as a little girl helped me realize my love for teaching young children. I recieved my Associates degree from Raritan Valley community College and then finished my degree at Penn State a few years later where I found my home in Happy Valley!

    This is my fifth year in the district and my first year teaching Kindergarten at Radio Park! My PDS (Professional Development School) internship through Penn State was spent in Kindergarten at Ferguson Elementary and 4th grade at Easterly Parkway. I then taught 1st grade for two years at Park Forest and Corl Street, finally landing in 2nd grade at Radio Park in the fall of 2022. While this is my fifth year with SCASD, I have spent the majorityof my career so far in early childhood-education. For the past 10 years, I have worked in different daycare settings where I have been both a teacher and curriculum coach. I also spent about 4 years as a director of a local daycare center in Bellefonte! It has always been my dream to teach Kindergarten and I am so grateful to plant my roots here at Radio Park! 

    This is an extra special year for me, as I will be getting married to my fiancé, Bryn in Novemeber of this year! We live in PA Furnace with our dog, Savi (an 11 year old Yorkshire Terrior), and our cats Mingus (an orange Tabby) and Millie (a Siamese). In my free time, I love to read, create with my Cricut, cook, play animal crossing, spend time with my pets, and be outside! Most importantly, I love spending time with family & friends and learning new
    things!
