Masters and undergraduate courses to obtain my Teaching Certification in Elementary Education (K-6th grades)
Bio: I have done many things in my life, from working as an Engineer for the Navy to being a stay-at-home mom for my three wonderful children. While I was at home with my children, I volunteered at their schools every chance that I got. That volunteer experience prompted me to go back to school and get my Teaching Certification in Elementary Education (K-6). After obtaining my certification, I worked as a Teacher’s Aid (first grade) at York Academy and had three long-term substitute positions at Central York and Spring Grove School Districts teaching Kindergarten, 3rd and 4th grades.
I think my biggest accomplishment in life is being a mom to my three wonderful children. My oldest is attending college at the University of Pittsburgh. My middle child is currently a senior at Central York and plans to attend Penn State in University Park after graduation. My youngest is currently a freshman in high school. My husband, Ridge, and I are always on the move attending our kid’s sporting events or performances!
I am blessed beyond measure to be able to teach First Grade at St. Rose of Lima! I love the family feel that we have at our school and being able to teach the Good News!
