One of my biggest academic accomplishments thus far was being a member of the Dean’s List every semester I attended Northampton Community College. Another accomplishment was not only landing the teaching position with Lehigh Valley Children’s Centers, but being promoted to Head Teacher within just a few weeks of working there. A third personal accomplishment was being an active participant in the 2011 Child Action Day in Harrisburg, PA. where I, along with my fellow professors and colleagues, spoke out on behalf of Early Childhood Education and its importance in our world.

Head Teacher
Nazareth, PA
I worked as the Head Teacher of an after-school program at Shafer Elementary in Nazareth. I worked with children grades K-3. I taught the children specific subjects and content areas, helped with homework, planned, partnered, and communicated with families; while working to provide the most comfortable, enriching, and beneficial environment possible. I was in charge of planning and implementing specific lesson plans for every day of the week- one of my favorite parts of the position!
