A little bit about me... I graduated with honors from the University of Missouri with a degree in Education. I am currently certified to teach English and Social Studies, and I am also a Library and Media Specialist. I taught English years ago in Missouri, but took some time off to raise two sets of twins (now 17 and 12). I am starting my fourth year at Clarion Area and I have loved every minute of my time here so far.
When I'm not teaching, you can usually find me watching my kids (or my students) doing something amazing. I love going to concerts and sporting events, so you will see me at many of yours. I love Clarion, but I also love to travel, and hiking through the woods is one of my favorite things to do when I am on the road. My favorite place to go is the beach (any beach) and if I could cover my classroom floor with sand and walk around barefoot every day, I would! I love to read, but I really like to be active. Sometimes, I combine both and listen to audiobooks while I bike or run.
This year... I will be teaching 7th grade World Geography, 9th grade US History, 8th grade Reading and a Psychology class for 10-12th grades. You can access each of those through the links below. I look forward to learning more about each of you and I know we are going to have a wonderful year together.
