“Since I just graduated from Lebanon Valley College this May, this is my first teaching career, and it is an absolute honor to be a part of the St. James Academy teaching faculty and community. During my student teaching experience at Annville Elementary School in Annville, PA, I was an after-school tutor for the year for grades 3-6.
I had many very unique experiences and opportunities. I give my mom a great deal of credit for getting me involved with so many of them! When I was in elementary school, I participated in Wilson College’s summer enrichment camp (SEEDS) every summer until my 8th-grade year. After that, I became an instructor for their camps for Irish dancing and taught for a total of five summers before I began college.
In 10th grade, I did an independent study project on one-room schoolhouses and spent time at the Cliff Island School on Cliff Island off the coast of Portland, Maine. I taught a unit of study on the Southwestern Native Americans and have been back since then four other times doing other units of study on the Pony Express and Jackson Pollack.”
