I grew up in Mechanicsburg and graduated high school from Cumberland Valley. I graduated college from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown in 2015. This is my first year teaching first grade at Edgewood Elementary School. I taught two years in third grade at South Middleton South Middleton School District. Previously, I was a long term substitute at Mechanicsburg School District in a fourth grade classroom for the second half of the year. I also had the opportunity to teach a second grade class for a marking period.
I teach first grade at Edgewood. In first grade we start learning more about sounding out words and how to read longer stories, learn how to spell words and write short stories. We also work on addition and subtraction strategies in math and continue to learn new strategies on other topics. We also have science and social studies during the day.
