    I am very excited to be on board with the Penns Valley School District again this year. Coming into my fourth year of teaching, I am ready to continue my journey as an educator. This profession gives me the opportunity to join my students on their journey of development, and I hope to be an influential component in each and every one of their lives.

    Originally from Chambersburg, PA, I began my journey in Centre County as a college student attending Penn State University majoring in Early Childhood Education. Penn State has long been in my blood as my father attended the university as well, so ever since I was born, you could find me sporting my Penn State attire. Coming from a musical family, it was my longtime dream to be a member of the Penn State Blue Band, and I happily lived that dream as a member of their drumline. Nothing gets the blood pumping than over 107,000 fans cheering you on as you march onto that field!


     I had the opportunity to student teach in the district at Centre Hall Elementary School, and ever since then, I fell in love with this school district. The slogan "Empowering our students every day to reach individual success" resonates in the hallways of our schools. I am excited to be a member of this team as we work to educate today's youth to be the leaders of tomorrow.
