Hello!  I come from a SMALL, rural town in Pennsylvania and lived in the same house for 23 years until graduating from Slippery Rock University in 2006 with a bachelor's degree in Elementary and Special Education.  I ventured from my home town of Grove City to Charlotte, NC after graduating, taught for 6 months in 2nd grade anddecided it wasn't the right place for me.  I've now found myself here in Florida at Dolphin Bay where I feel like I'm part of a family.  This is my third year at Dolphin Bay teaching first grade and I'm glad I'm kicking it off with you!  During breaks and holiday's I leave sunny Florida and head home to what is usually snowy, cold, and rainy PA to visit my family back home, yuck!  I have 2 older sisters and I'm an Aunt to my niece and a 6 year old nephew who is enterting 1st grade this fall, just like you!  I can't wait to learn more about you all.
