About Me

  • I grew up in Southern York, PA and now live close to Wrightsville. This is my 3rd year at Etown and I am so excited to be here! I am looking forward to a GREAT year of learning in second/third grade:D

     

    Education

    Millersville University (BS Early Childhood Education)

    Eastern Mennonite University (currently working on my Trauma and Resilience certificate)

     

    When I was in school...

    I played viola from 3rd-12th grade and participated in the pit orchestra for three musical productions: Fiddler on the Roof, Beauty & the Beast, and Thoroughly Modern Millie.

    My favorite subject was math!

    I took art lessons outside of school and to this day enjoy acrylic and water color painting.

     

    If I were not a teacher...

    I would probably be a nurse, except I have a squeamish stomach so... 

     

    I became a teacher because...

    I love learning!! Teaching allows me to empower other people to do the same.

     

    In my freetime you can find me...
