I joined Tapestry in 2015 as a Kindergarten Teaching Partner. Prior to Tapestry, I was a substitute teacher in Erie, PA for a year and I taught a full day Pre-Kindergarten program at St. Peter R.C. School for seven years. This will be my third year as a Kindergarten Lead Teacher; I am beyond excited to be working alongside our amazing Kindergarten team and teaching our youngest learners! I completed my bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education/Special Education at Mercyhurst University. My master’s degree is in Literacy Instruction from Niagara University. I hold NYS certification in each of the above areas. When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my family.
