Home Sweet Home! That’s how I feel every morning when I walk into California Area High School.
After graduating from California Area Senior High School in 1983, I pursued a Bachelor of Science degree in Education at California University of Pennsylvania. Shortly after I finished a Master’s Degree as a Reading Specialist, I began my career with the Turkeyfoot Valley School District and later with the Bentworth School District.
After gaining 9 years of a variety of teaching experiences while at Turkeyfoot, I was offered a position with Bentworth School District. Again, opportunities were presented to diversify my professional experiences. Although I completed administrative certification in 2001, I was not quite ready to step out of the classroom. So, I cheerfully continued my career at Bentworth for 9 more years while teaching night classes at Westmoreland County Community College.
All of that changed when I was invited to join the administrative team of the California Area School District in 2006. Everyday I have the luxury to work with a talented faculty, dedicated staff, concerned parents and friendly students. What more could I ask for? I’m home.
