WELCOME TO ENGINEERING & DESIGN!
This year I will be teaching Engineering & Design 6 to all 6th graders and Engineering & Design 7 to all 7th graders! I will see each student for 1 semester.
Check out the links on the left for more information about the classes I teach. Continue reading below for information about myself!
I graduated from Bowling Green State University in Ohio with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I am certified in elementary, middle school math, and middle school science. I also have a Master’s Degree in Instructional Technology from Duquesne University.
I spent 4 years teaching Math, Science, and keyboarding to 7th graders in Eaton, Ohio (near Dayton). I taught 12 years at Buffalo Elementary and spent the majority of my time there teaching science, but I also taught everything from reading and English, to math and social studies depending on the year! This will be my 3rd year at the middle school and my 19th year of teaching overall!
During my first year of teaching in PA, I was selected as a “Pennsylvania State Level Keystone Technology Integrator”. The award recognizes teachers who integrate technology effectively into their classrooms. This was a great honor and has provided me the opportunity to attend and present at several technology conferences.
I really enjoy teaching. I like to challenge the students, and to make sure that I help them to learn the skills necessary to succeed in school and life!
