Welcome! I am so glad to be teaching at SPS for my 4th year!
I am a proud Trinity Graduate!
After Graduating from Trinity and Cumberland Perry Area Vocational Technical School in 2004, I worked in various daycares and preschools while attending Kutztown University. I graduated Cum Laude (3.54 GPA) in 2008.
My first teaching assignment was in the WSSD at Crossroads Middle School teaching 7th grade Language Arts. I then taught the same class at Allen Middle School before accepting a permanent teaching position for 7th and 8th grade Language Arts at St. Catherine Laboure School in Harrisburg. I taught there for 7 years, and I also ran the Student Council, headed the Mini-THON fundraiser, and was the costume designer for the spring musicals.
I always dreamed of teaching 2nd grade, but I really LOVE teaching middle school! *Some random things about me:
I married my high school sweetheart, Joshua Wilbur, in 2010. My daughter, Kenli Grace, was born in January of 2014.
My son, Calvin Jeffrey was born in December of 2016.
I have a dog, a Jack Russell named Paisley.
I have a Siamese cat named Gebeau...he's pretty weird!
I LOVE to read, especially historical fiction.
Even though I am a teacher, I HATE coffee...I know, weird!
I lived in Newport, Rhode Island until I was 13.
I played the flute in middle school and sang in the choir, girls' ensemble, and Diocesan Chorus while at Trinity High School.
I traveled to Ireland and England with my senior class in 2004.
