Dear Families,


My name is Janice Penn and I will be your child's Reading/Language Arts teaher for the 2021-2022 scchool year. Your child will be spending a great deal of time with me in the classroom and online therefore, I would like to tell you a little about myself personally and professionally. 


I was born and raised in Scranton, Pennsylvania and graduated high school from West Scranton High. I then went to Penn State where I earnded a Bachelors degree in Human Develpoment and Family Studies. I worked as a TSS for 5 years then went back to school to follow my passion for teaching. I attended Marywood University where I earned my teaching certification. After recieving my teaching certification, I started to sub in the Riverside School District. This will be the start of my twelfth year teaching. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades over the years. 


I have been married to my husband Charlie for 13 years. We have 2 children (TWINS) Emily and Ryan. They are 11 years old. We also have a Beagle named Daisy who is our quarentine puppy. 


I look foward to a very successful school year!
