A Little More:

I grew up in Ashtabula, Ohio. After graduating from Penn State with a Bachelor’s degree in Education, I moved to Pittsburgh. I taught in the elementary schools for ten years before having children of my own. While I was teaching in the elementary schools, I earned a Master’s degree in Education with a concentration in Special Education. I then stayed home with my own children until they entered middle school. When my children started middle school, I returned to work as a teacher at PHCPC Preschool. In my years at PHCPC Preschool, I have been the Three Day Class teacher. Eventually, I also took on the directorship of the preschool. Being a teacher and the director at the preschool has been a great joy in my life. I love the preschool staff, the preschool children, and our wonderful preschool families. I am blessed to call PHCPC Preschool my home away from home.
