  • Welcome to Kindergarten!
         This is my 13th year in Kindergarten at Radio Park.  I have been a part of the Radio Park Community for the past 19 years as I followed my own children through their elementary years right here! Radio Park was such a special place for all of my children and I am confident that it will be for your family as well!
         I am a resident of Park Hills. My husband, Mark, and I have 4 children. Our oldest son, Luke, loves to read and explore the great outdoors. Our second son, Jonnie, is a senior at Penn State. He discovered a love for science and healthcare while at SCASD and is a Biobehavioral Health major.  Our daughter, Anna, is starting her junior year at PSU this fall. She is studying elementary education. Our youngest son, Leo, will be a 10th grader at State High this fall!  He loves sports and has a passion for water! He is an avid swimmer and loves to compete!  He also loves jumping and sprinting and is on the High school track team.  
         As a family, we had a wonderful and busy summer filled with some relaxing, camping, biking, hiking and visits with family! We spent a lot of time in or near the water. We enjoyed 2 lake vacations this year. We always do an annual family camping trip to Glendale Lake and we spent an additional week at Treasure Lake.  Locally, we always love enjoying the summer warmth and sun at SPRA pool. As long-time members of SPRA, it has always been a favorite place for us to spend time!
         Fall is a great time of year! Going back to school is a fresh start and something to get excited about. I love the wonderful autumn colors and getting back to a routine!  I look forward to the many adventures that await as I meet my new class! I am working hard to organize and create a great learning space for your child. I am anxious to welcome your child into our kindergarten family and I look forward to making it a great year for them. 
          My educational experience includes a BA in elementary education from St. Vincent College and an MEd from St. Francis University, where I focused on early reading instruction.  I am so happy to be a part of the Radio Park faculty and proud to work alongside many fine teachers who have been inspirational and dedicated to teaching my own kids.   My previous full-time teaching assignment was outside this district. I taught 1st grade for 7 years from 1990-1997.  From 1997- 2008, I  spent time at home experiencing and learning in ways that only parenthood can teach!  After a brief period of guest teaching in SCASD, I came back full-time in 2011. Welcome to Radio Park! 
    Feel free to contact me at if you have questions.  I check my email daily and will get back to you.
