I grew up in Berks County and attended grade school and high school in the Wyomissing area. I always thought I wanted the "big city life", so I started my college career at Temple University. That was not quite the right fit for me, but I did find my place at LaSalle University just a few miles up the road from Temple. I did all my student teaching in the Philadelphia School District.
For a time I was married into the Navy and I taught in Florida, Texas, and Oklahoma. When I returned to Pennsylvania I began teaching in the Muhlenberg School District as a middle school special education teacher. After I earned my Reading Specialist degree I earned my position here in Pottsgrove. I love teaching and I've enjoyed all my teaching experiences, but here I have the chance to do what I love all day long - teach reading!
I currently live in Reading with my husband and my twelve year old daughter. As of September my son started his sophomore year at Penn State Main Campus. In my free time I enjoy listening to music, scrap booking, and of course, reading. I am also a runner. I usually run 1/2 marathons. I completed my first full marathon in November 2013, but I'm not sure I want to do that again. I am frequently on the look out for fun race so I can try to beat my own personal best.
