What high school did you go to?

Yough High School in Hermitage/Greensburg.

What college did you go to?

Shippensburg University.

What extracurricular activities did you participate in high school and college?

In high school I participated in soccer, track, and volleyball; in college I participated in intramural activities.

What made you decide to be a teacher?

A good friend of mine was the smartest person to me. We had AP English together, and she couldn’t understand the poem, The Ode to Grushen. Helping her made me realize I was good at understanding English. I also played “school” with my sisters, but I would only play if I could be the teacher.

How long have you been here at Redbank?

14 years.

Since you have been at Redbank, what sports have you coached or clubs that you sponsored?  

I coached Junior High Girls’ Basketball and Junior High Volleyball.

What courses do you currently teach here at the high school?

I teach English 8 and 10 and Speech 9-12.

What is one of your favorite teaching memories?

Any time that a student has said thank you for anything.

What is one local, state, or national educational issue that you would like to see resolved?    

Schools should eliminate zero-tolerance bullying, which only punishes the bully.  Instead we should have a “sit down” to talk about what happened, to just talk the issue out.

What are some of your hobbies outside of work?

Hiking and quilting.

If you had not chosen to be a teacher, what other career path would you have explored?

I would have chosen a school counselor.
