    My husband and I are blessed to have 2 beautiful girls.  We also added a black lab to our family - 4 1/2   year old "Willow" is quite a handful!  We love to spend time together  fishing, playing soccer (In House, Travel and Cup) and swimming. We also love to watch our black and gold teams - we will not miss a Pens game (we all have our favorite players), and a typical Steeler Sunday consists of the game, wings and family. Yes, we also LOVE to HATE some teams as well... The Capitals and Ravens rank right up there, along with the Patriots and Flyers.
    I am an avid reader, and always spend the summer catching up on my favorite authors new releases.   I've finished Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments series, as well as her Infernal Devices trilogy,  and The Twilight Saga (for the second time).  Several "new finds" in the favorite author category are Erica Stevens, Jesse Donovan, JR Ward, John Patrick Kennedy, Lila Monroe, Lauren Blakely, Vi Keenland and Bella Forrest.  Kristen Hannah is also a favorite author of mine - my home bookshelf is fully stocked with her books.  The TBR list on my kindle is... yikes! way too long :) I may or may not be *slightly* addicted to my kindle.   I am always looking to add to my long book list of must-reads, so suggestions are welcome.  I LOVE to read, read, read!  

    Being a North Allegheny graduate, it is my pleasure to return to the district as an employee.  Currently, I am in my 20th year with NA.  After working at Peebles Elementary in K-2 for 2 years, and then Franklin Elementary in Kindergarten for 6 years, I have found my home at McKnight Elementary.  This is my 12th year at McKnight teaching 1st grade.
