Hello! I am a third grade teacher at Eagle View Elementary School. I teach ELA (reading, writing, grammar, and spelling) and STEM (science and math). This is my 15th year teaching. At Somerset, I've taught third and fifth grade ELA at Eagle View. Prior to that, I taught third grade for 9 years in the Berlin Brothersvalley School District.
My passion for working with children began in high school. I attended Bethel Park High School, which is in a suburb of Pittsburgh. I had the opportunity to work in the preschool located at my high school. I also worked at a daycare after school and in the summer. (I had many experiences babysitting too.) While in college, I had many more opportunities to work with children. I attended Juniata College. There, I worked at the Early Childhood Education Center and had various opportunities to go into the local school district. I graduated from Juniata in May of 2006 with a BS degree in Early Childhood, Elementary, and Special Education. During my undergraduate program at Juniata, I also had the opportunity to study abroad in York, England for a semester. I decided to further my education at Frostburg State University. I graduated in December of 2009 with a MS degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
I am married to Mr. Spangler (the elementary principal at Maple Ridge). I have four wonderful children, Sophie, Jack, Luke, and Anna. I also have one dog, Comet.
When I'm not working, I love going for walks with my family. I also enjoy reading books and playing games my children too.
