Dear Shawnee Team students and parents,
I am very excited to meet all of you and begin our adventure together. As the Shawnee team, we will be exploring new worlds and embarking on new adventures. I can not wait to get to know you, but I'm going to tell you about me.
I was born and raised here in Lancaster County. After graduating from Warwick High School, I graduated from Millersville University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. I returned to Millersville University to earn a Master's Degree in Language Arts with a Reading Specialist Certificate.
I began my teaching career at Donegal Middle School as a learning support teacher for one year. I then taught sixth grade for the next two years. I moved to Grandview Elementary School and began teaching fourth grade! I have been teaching for 25 years - I know, I can't believe it either. In all those years, I have had many adventures. I taught on the second floor of the brand new Donegal Springs Elementary School when it opened and called it home for eight years. When the district reconfigured the schools, I moved to Donegal Intermediate School. During the remodelling, in one year I moved from inside the building to the trailers and back to the building. I became very good at packing. This year I am looking forward to my newest adventure teaching fifth grade! I can't wait!
Outside of school I enjoy living here in the district with my husband of 26 years and our two children. Both of my children are Donegal graduates.They loved their years at Donegal, but are enjoying the adventure known as college. Joelle is in her third year of nursing school and Josh will be a sophomore in college and playing soccer. My husband and I are beginning a new chapter of our lives - a whole new "kidless" adventure.
I LOVE to read and teach reading. Summertime is my time to read. I tend to devour books like chocolate. I have read four professional books about reading and writing. I'm excited to implement the new things that I have learned. I also read at least five books for fun! My go to summer fun reading tends to be mysteries. I can't wait to hear about all the books that you've read this summer. I've also been spending my summer excersizing, gardening and canning, spending time with my family and visiting our cabin in the mountains near Penn State.
It will be a few short weeks until we meet. I am thrilled to get our year started and have an AWESOME year together.
