         This will be my 17th year teaching within the Upper St. Clair School District. I received my Masters of Arts in Teaching degree from the University of Pittsburgh and my undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Biology from the University of Cincinnati. I am thrilled to be a part of the staff at Eisenhower Elementary and its wonderful tradition of child-centered education.
