As the Emotional Support Teacher at Norwin High School, let me share a little bit about myself. Professionally, I have been teaching in the field of special education for thirty-one years; while fifteen of the years have been with Norwin School District.
I graduated from Slippery Rock State College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Special & Elementary Education. Throughout my career, I have received a Master’s Degree and Supervisory Certification from the University of Pittsburgh. While attending California University, I obtained a Principal Certification and Superintendent Letter of Eligibility. Currently, I am at the halfway point in the Doctorate of Educational Leadership program.
Personally, I live in the country with my husband, David and our pug, Gus. We have four adult children; Adam, Tyler, Ashley and Vincent. I am excited for upcoming graduations, weddings and grandchildren. Looking forward to Disney trips with our granddaughter :). In addition, to spending time with my family, I love to travel and our camper permits Gus to go along with us. I refer to myself as an amateur stained glass artist. I also enjoy reading, crocheting, gardening, swimming and biking.
I am looking forward to a school year that provides each of us with positive, learning experiences. My life motto, "High expectations result in high results; while low expectations result in low results." Overall, I consider myself to be blessed with a career that is my true passion!
As an educator, Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan provide me with the motivation to strive towards assisting students to make academic and personal growth.
