My Family at the Beach 2019

  • Welcome to Kindergarten!
         This is my ninth year in Kindergarten at Radio Park.  I have been a part of the Radio Park Community for the past 16 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. I am a resident of Park Hills and my husband, Mark, and I have 4 children. Our oldest son, Luke, loves to read and explore the great outdoors. He is a PSU student. Our second son, Jonnie, is also at Penn State. He discovered a love for science and healthcare while at SCASD. He is a biology major.  Our daughter, Anna, is a junior at State High. She plays Field Hockey and swims. You may have seen her lifeguarding or teaching swim lessons throughout the summer months. Our youngest son, Leo, will be a 6th grader at Park Forest Middle School this year!  He is an amazing helper and loves to come meet the kids and assist at kindergarten camp! Leo loves all sports and is usually seen with a ball in his hand! He has a passion for the water and is an avid swimmer.
         As a family, we had a wonderful and busy summer filled with a trip to the Myrtle Beach, some camping, visits with family and summer swim team. We are long-time members and fans of SPRA pool.  Fall is a great time of year!  I love the wonderful autumn colors and getting back into routines again!  I look forward to the many adventures that await as I meet my new class! We will have some visiting PSU education students helping out in our classroom for the first half of the year. I am very excited about our classroom space and the newly completed Radio Park Elementary. I am anxious to welcome your child into our kindergarten family and I look forward to a great year!
          My educational experience includes a BA in elementary education from St. Vincent College and a 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  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!
