Meet the Teacher

A little about me...
I am a native of St. Marys, PA and a graduate of St. Marys Area High School. After graduation, I attended Susquehanna University (Selinsgrove, PA) and majored in Communications (Broadcast emphasis). I returned to the St. Marys Area School District and served as a learning facilitator until 2009. During my time as a facilitator, I earned my Master's Degree in Secondary Education (English certification) from the University of Phoenix. In 2009, I accepted a teaching position in the SMAHS English Department.  While here, I have taught English, Mass Media, Public Speaking, Theater Arts, and Newswriting. This summer, I completed 30 more graduate credits beyond my Master's. I enjoy learning new things and using them in my classroom. 
In addition to my classroom duties, I serve as the Color Guard Director and the Choreographer for the annual spring musical. I also co-direct the Mock Accident when it's held at SMAHS and I prepare the daily announcements for the high school.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, my friends, and my cat, Oka (whom I adopted from the Elk County Humane Society in 2015).  I also enjoy reading, listening to music, bike riding, and golfing.
