This will be my 4th year at Allen Middle School and I am very excited to be your Computer teacher this year!
My previous teaching experience includes: 2 years at New Cumberland Middle School (as Computer Teacher), 2 years at Red Land High School (as Business/Computer Education teacher), and 4 years as an Instructional Integration Advisor for Technology at Red Mill, Washington Heights, and Lower Allen Elementary Schools. I love computers and all things technology! I hope to bring my enthusiasm for the subject to my classes every day!
over 30 years I have been happily married to my husband and we have
three great kids that have all graduated from Cedar Cliff High School. We are so blessed to have three talented children.
Our oldest daughter completed her studies from SUNY-ESF (State University of New York - College of Environmental Science and Forestry) in Syracuse, NY. She still lives and works in the Syracuse area as the farm manager at Brady Farm. Her work has been featured in several articles: article 1, article 2.
Our middle son attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) and now lives and works in Montana as a chef. He hones his mad food skills at Big Sky ski resort. We love it when he makes it back to PA and prepares us amazing meals.
Our youngest son graduated from The Pennsylvania State University, University Park where he is majored in Security Risk Analysis in the College of Information Sciences and Technology. He works in the cybersecurity field in Arlington, VA.
Scroll down to the bottom of this page to see an image of an Apple LISA, one of the very first computers Apple ever made. I used this computer during a summer internship in college with General Electric - Aviation.
Look at how big and bulky the screen and keyboard are ~ how square
looking the mouse is ~ how expensive it was! The computers that we have
today in school certainly look and feel very different than they used
Math was always my favorite subject when I was in school.
Red Swedish fish candy is my weakness!
