Welcome to my page!
I am part of the kindergarten team here at Towanda School District. I hold a dual Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition & Dietetics as well as Sports Nutrition. While I was able to teach adults working in the nutrition field, my true passion was teaching children. I decided to change course and continue my education so that I could teach and nurture children. Subsequently, I earned a K-6 Elementary certification. I am also certified to teach grades 7-8 English Language Arts & Reading. I too, have started the coursework required to earn a MS degree as a K-12 Reading Specialist.
I was lucky to be able to work with the school district in the piloting and implementation of the KEI (Kindergarten Entry Inventory) which officially began in our district in 2016. I was also a part of a special grant team that provided me insight and opportunities to appreciate and understand PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports). I am excited to see the long-term impact that the school-wide PBIS model will provide for our district students.
It is a very exciting time to be a part of education. I am thrilled to be a Black Knight and I thank all that allow me to share the school year with them.
