Q: What classes will you be teaching at LVC?
A: I will be teaching primarily Literacy and Literature courses in the Early Childhood Education and Special Education Programs at LVC. I will also supervise student field experiences in various school settings.

Q: What is your educational background and teaching experience?
A: I have a B.S. in Kindergarten and Elementary Education; M.Ed in Literacy Education; and Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction, with an emphasis in Literacy - all from Penn State University, University Park. I have taught in higher education for the past 20 years. Most recently, I taught at Penn State Harrisburg as an assistant professor of education. Additionally, I served as the coordinator of the Master's of Education in Literacy Education Program and director of the Summer Reading Program. Prior to that, I taught at Temple University Harrisburg, Shippensburg University, and Wilson College. In addition to my teaching experience in higher education, I also have more than 10 years of teaching pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, elementary, and middle-school-aged students across private, public, clinical, and independent settings.

Q: What is your first impression of Annville?
A: As a resident of Pennsylvania for all my life, I have passed signs for Annville and Lebanon Valley College many, many times. However, I never took the time to detour and explore the area. I am most impressed by the beauty of the entire community; a beautiful campus nestled in the midst of a historic town with gorgeous surrounding countryside.

Q: What excites you about teaching at The Valley?
A: I most excited about the opportunities for engaging students in high impact experiences. I would very much like to involve students in teacher research and classroom inquiry. I envision working on projects with students and accompanying them to conferences and presentations.

Q: Tell us something interesting about yourself – crazy hobby? Weird talent?
A: Nothing really crazy or weird to reveal about myself. I am quite down-to-earth. I absolutely love spending time with my two daughters, Taylor and Abbey. We are a very active bunch and are constantly on the move. Together, we hike nature trails with our Golden Retriever, Willoughby. We also enjoy biking, kayaking, and skiing.

Q: What events are you looking forward to attending on campus this fall?

A: I am most excited about attending various sporting events and cheering for the students. However, I would like to attend as many events as possible and immerse myself in the culture of LVC.
