I have been teaching fourth, second, and now fifth grade at Boalsburg Elementary and now Mount Nittany Elementary since the 1994-1995 school year. I grew up in State College and graduated from State High. After high school I attended Penn State to study Elementary Education. During my undergraduate years, I traveled to Morelia, Mexico and finished courses for my minor, which is Spanish. I also have a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Supervision. Currently I live in State College with my husband Randy, my two sons Andrew and Frankie. When not teaching you'll find me with my family and friends or doing any type of exercising, especially hiking Tussey Mountain. I can't wait to begin this adventure with my students as we start a new year at Mount Nittany Elementary.
