Hello Parents and/or Guardians,
I feel so blessed and privileged to be teaching your child this year about science! Since I will be spending A LOT of time with your child, it seems appropriate that I share a little about myself.
I grew up in Pittsburgh with my mom, dad and four sisters, graduated valedictorian of Penn Hills high school and went on to receive both my undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Pittsburgh (BS in Biology- 1986 and Master of Arts in Teaching-1990). In between undergraduate and graduate school, I worked as a phlebotomist, cancer research assistant and was part of the University of Pittsburgh's liver transplant team. After receiving my masters degree, I got married, began having children and decided to stay-at-home to raise our two sons for the next 14 years. I started my teaching career in 2006 and have been at Fort Couch since 2015.
My husband and I live in Peters Township and are empty-nesters. In my spare time I love to spend time with my husband and sons, take long bike rides on the Montour Trail, learn more about the sciences I teach, visit with my mom and four sisters, have coffee with friends, and read the bible. I also love to sing, play the piano and violin. Life is good!
I look forward to learning more about you and your child, as well, throughout the year. If you would like to see some family photos, click on "Mrs. G.'s Family Photos". Thanks.
