I am a proud graduate of Duquesne University with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. After graduating from Duquesne, my work week was split between being a day-to-day substitute and teaching at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium. I taught at the zoo for a total of six years (throughout college and beyond). Peebles Elementary became my first “home” as a classroom teacher where I taught 2nd and 3rd grade. When I moved to McKnight, I started as a Kindergarten teacher and then moved up to fifth grade. I have been teaching fifth grade ever since. I completed my master's degree in 2008 at Gannon University where I studied Curriculum and Instruction. I strive to be a lifelong learner and hope to instill this in my future students as well!
Above all, I love teaching. I am so fortunate to have found a career in which I can impact the life of a child. It is my goal to help each child reach their maximum potential by providing them with the necessary resources to help engender learning. These resources include a nurturing environment, a variety of teaching methods, and regular communication with parents and colleagues. I look forward to developing a partnership with you this year!
