• Hello!  I am a third grade teacher at Eagle View Elementary School.  I teach ELA (aka. reading, writing, grammar, and spelling). This is my 13th 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 two dogs, Hailey and 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.
