•  To introduce myself personally, I am married, have two sons and live in USC. My husband, Doug, works for Eaton Corporation. Our two sons, Brent (34) and Scott (32), both graduated from USC and from Virginia Tech.  (Yes, they were there during the shootings, but we knew they were safe very early that day.)


    Brent’s degree is in Chemical Engineering, and after four years as a Plant and Quality Engineer at Celanese in Narrows, VA he recently accepted a new position with Essentra  in Richmond, VA. Scott graduated from VT in 2009 with a degree in Business/Finance and works for Capital  Fiduciary Advisors in the Washington, DC area. Brent was married  May 9th and a have a wonderful daughter-in-law, Amy!  Scott was just engaged to another wonderful future daughter-in-law, Alex. 


    Enjoy this time with your children, because the old saying is true; it seems like my boys were at Baker just “yesterday”. When they were at USC, Doug and I spent a lot of our evenings and weekends at the soccer fields, baseball fields, and basketball courts around the township.   As they grew we were able to enjoy watching their teams win a couple WPIAL championships and a couple PA State championships. And also to watch them both play collegiate soccer at VT.


    This is my 33rd year of teaching and I recently obtained my Administration/Principal Certificate from Duquesne University. I also earned my National Board Certification in 2009.  In addition, I  am also the Elementary Science Curriculum Leader for USC.    I have seventeen years teaching experience in second level (11 here at Baker). During the 1995-1996 school years I taught first level at Baker. I also have educational experience with pre-school, kindergarten, first, fourth, and fifth levels. In addition, I instructed seventh and eighth grade at Fort Couch for 3 years. I am thrilled to be back in 3rd grade again for my thirteenth year; we have many new and exciting things planned.
