Personal Information
    I am originally from Philipsburg, PA.  My family and I reside in Bellefonte.
    Education Background
    I graduated from Philipsburg Osceola Area High School in 1997.  I then went to Penn State University where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology.  After working in the sports medicine field for two years, I returned to graduate school at Towson University in Maryland and earned a Master of Arts degree in Education.
    Work Experience
    The 2023-2024 school year is my 18th year in sixth grade at Park Forest Middle School.  Prior to coming to the State College Area School District, I taught in the Philipsburg Osceola Area School District.  I completed my student teaching rotations in the Howard and Anne Arundel County School Systems in Maryland.
    Other Interests
    In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, exercising, being outdoors, and watching sports.
    One of my former students claimed that my current bio which you can see above was "boring" so she offered to write me a new one.  You can view my updated bio here.  A big thank you to Anna H. for her contribution. :)
