All About Me

      Welcome! I currently teach English Language Learners, Tier 3 students enrolled in Read180, and co-support the Gifted Students in all of our elementary schools.  I am currently in my 18th year of teaching in the Penns Valley School District. While most of my school day is spent at Penns Valley Elementary and Intermediate Schools, you may find me at the High School or at Centre Hall Elementary. 
      My husband and I have lived in the Penns Valley Area for over 35 years. We have 3 children, all of whom graduated from Penns Valley. We are also the proud grandparents of two grandsons and 1 granddaughter. In my spare time I enjoy reading, sewing, and cooking. 
Many parents ask what they can do to help their children become a better reader. Here are some web-sites that discuss ways to help children improve their reading skills.
