Meet Mrs. Grace

  • Meet Mrs. Grace             


    Welcome to my page.  I am so happy that I have an opportunity to work with so many wonderful people.  Thank you for sharing your children with me.  It has always been my desire to teach.  Do you remember a teacher that made you laugh, maybe a teacher that you thought pushed you too hard?  How about something they said and you never forgot that?

    Teachers do make a difference. It is my goal to be the teacher that makes your child laugh, to push your child to be his or her best and to use positive words that they will never forget.  I know we are going to have a great year.

    A Little about me.......

    I grew up in Moosic and graduated from Riverside High School.  I live in Moosic with my husband Paul and our three dogs  Gracie, Mikey and Nelly.  We love animals!

    I graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Special Education- Go Lions!  After graduating from PSU I attended the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM where I became certified in Regular Education.  I also taught K-4th grade at Kirtland Air Force Base.

    Before joining Riverside School District I worked with the NEIU #19 for five years teaching 9-12th grade students with Emotional Disturbances.  I  graduated from Wilkes in May 2008 with my Master's in Educational Leadership.  I am in my 24th year of teaching!

    Some Fun Facts.....

    I love grape propel water.

    I have a beautiful step-daughter, Karen, that lives in San Antonio, Texas

    Dunkin Donuts is my favorite coffee shop.

    My favorite color is pink, my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving and I love to shop.

    I love to work in my garden.  I love the outdoors.

    Whenever we go away, I always buy an ornament from the town we visited, to put on my tree at Christmastime.
