    I was born....
    In Lancaster County
     
     
    I went to ...
    Lancaster Catholic High School and then to Penn State for my
    BS in Elementary Education.  I liked PSU so much that I also
    received my Master's in Teaching and Curriculum from there as well.
    I also have the Middle School Math teaching certificate.
     
     
     My family...
    I live with my husband, my daughter (who just started her senior year at Penn State), and our our Shetland Sheepdog, Reilly.
     
     
     
    When I was in elementary school.....
    I always wanted to be a teacher.
     
     
     If I were not a teacher...
    I would either be a physical therapist or some sort of landscaper.
    Teaching is and always will be my first love.
     
     I became a teacher....
    Because I love how the students keep me young and they always remind me to
    keep a sense of humor about myself.  It is also fun to experience things with others and to
    hear another's point of view about a topic or to hear/see how someone else learns.
     
     
     
    I am interested in....
    Penn State football!  My family and I try to get to at least one game a season (more if possible!)
    There is nothing like experiencing a game in Beaver stadium!  
     
     My hobbies....
    I like to garden and landscape my yard, watch football, and to travel.  
     
    My favorite sports teams...
    Penn State football and Duke basketball.
    I also enjoy watching professional football and I cheer for the New England Patriots.
     
     
    I love to vacation...
    with my family and visit new places. We enjoy trying new restaurants and places to visit. 
     
    My favorite food....
    Flavored coffee, dark chocolate, and Mexican food.
