About Me

I grew up in Fayetteville, PA and I attended Chambersburg Area Sr. High School.  I started college, Hagerstown Jr and then Wilson,  at the age of 40 and graduated at the age of 47.  I had been working as a teaching assistant for 13 years at Fairview in the first grade.  During this time period I also worked in a daycare  center and at Peoples Drug Store (now called CVS).

I was very fortunate to come back to Fairview for my teaching career.  I taught 3rd grade for one year and have been in 1st grade since the fall of 2000. 

I have two grown children and  4 grandchildren.  I love spending time with my grandchildren and my children.  I am so very proud of all of them.

I am married to a wonderful man and we have one dog.  I love to read, swim, take walks, play on the computer, and SCRAPBOOK.  I am a Close to My Heart consultant. 

I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!  I feel that if we work as a team (parents/teacher/child) to help your child be successful in school, we will help him/her develop nicely this year socially and academically.
