I graduated from Millersville State College in 1975 with a Bachelor of Science in English Education. I began my teaching career at Greenwood School District, Millerstown, PA, in the fall of 1975. I taught eighth and ninth grade English and reading. I earned my Master’s Degree as a Reading Specialist from Shippensburg State College in 1978. I retired from teaching in 1998, after 23 years in the classroom. I enjoyed my days in the classroom very much. I was very fortunate to have wonderful colleagues and a very supportive administration.
