Welcome to Second Grade
I hope you have all enjoyed a wonderful summer! I am looking forward to this upcoming school year. Please see the following attachment for my welcome back letter and school supply list.

All About Me
When I first began teaching in Perk Valley in 2011, I was an LTS in 5th grade for the year.  After that I started teaching 2nd grade. I cannot believe this is already my sixth year working with 2nd graders! 

I graduated from the Schreyer Honors College at Penn State in 2010 with my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I also have my Masters of Education with a Reading Specialist certification.

I am happily married to my high school sweetheart, Chad, and we have two beautiful children, Colin and Peyton. In my free time, I love spending time with my family, going for walks, reading, and relaxing.

Here are 10 fun facts about me:

1. I am a Harry Potter fanatic.
2. I played soccer and softball for 16 years.
3. I recently visited Paris, France.
4. I love my coffee and need it every morning!
5. I am a roller coaster fanatic.
6. During football season, I tend to lose my voice at least once from yelling at the Eagles’ games.
7. I have two children - Colin (2 1/2) and Peyton (10 months)
8. I am very allergic to cats.
9. I have 18 nieces and nephews and still counting.
10. I love all different types of puzzles.
