Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year and thank you for taking the time to visit my teacher page! My name is Miss Piestrak and I am the K-5 Special Education teacher at Penns Valley Intermediate/Elementary School. This will be my fourth year of teaching and my second year teaching at PVASD. While I am not originally from Centre County, I can certainly say that I have fallen in love with the area and have been enjoying being a part of the community thus far!
Furthermore, I graduated in 2016 with my B.S. degree from Bloomsburg University where I received my dual Pk-4 Early Childhood and Pk-8 Special Education certification. I also received my K-12 English as a Second Language (ESL) Program Specialist certification. A couple years later, I graduated from Bloomsburg University again but this time with my M.Ed. degree in Reading. These educational experiences have given me the opportunity to work with a variety of diverse student populations across all grade levels ranging from Kindergarten to adult learners! I am looking forward to continuing this lifelong learning journey here at PVASD with fellow colleagues and students!
Once again, I am looking forward to this school year and please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions/concerns at [email protected]. My hope is that we can work together towards the same goal of ensuring your child has a successful learning experience and reaches his/her fullest potential!
