I have been teaching at Conestoga Elementary school for 15 years. This year marks my 5th year as a first grade teacher. I taught kindergarten for 10 years. I graduated from Manheim Township High School in 1999. I am a 2003 graduate of Millersville University and have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary and Early Childhood Education with a minor in Psychology. I completed my Master’s degree in Language and Literacy at Millersville University in 2008, and am a certified reading specialist. I continue to take graduate courses that develop my skills as a teacher of young children. I am always excited to share my new knowledge with the young children in my care. My husband (who is also a teacher) and I reside in Conestoga with our 9 year old son, Benson and our golden retriever Turtle. We love being a part of the close knit community of Conestoga!
