My Family

  • Welcome to Kindergarten!
     
         This is my 11th year in Kindergarten at Radio Park.  I have been a part of the Radio Park Community for the past 18 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. 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 and is a Biobehavioral Health major.  Our daughter, Anna, is starting her freshman year at PSU this fall. She will study elementary education.  Anna lifeguards and teaches swim lessons throughout the summer months. Our youngest son, Leo, will be an 8th grader at Park Forest Middle School this year!  He loves sports and has a true passion for the water! He is an avid swimmer, swimming and competing year-round.  He also a sprinter on the middle school track team.  
     
         As a family, we had a wonderful and busy summer filled with some camping, biking, hiking and visits with family! We spent a lot of time in or near the water, but stayed local. We enjoyed a week at the lake and enjoyed the summer warmth and sun at SPRA pool. We are long-time members of SPRA pool and it is always a favorite place for us to spend time. 
     
         Fall is a great time of year! Going back to school is always a fresh start and something to get excited about. I also 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 safe learning space as we adjust to changing covid regulations. 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 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!
