Do unto others as you would have them do to you.

If you remember this all else will fall into place.

Teaching, parenting, anything you do.

Degrees and Certifications:

I received my teaching certificate from Fairmont State College.

I graduated in 1984 with a degree in Elementary Education.

That enables me certified to teach in grades 1-6.

I have maintained my certificate through the years and am current with all of my credits.

More About Me:

I am married to Joe Shaffer, a Notre Dame grad, and we have two daughters.

Emily, who lives in New York City with her husband Vance and their dog Margot.

Hannah, who lives in Philadelphia and works for Urban Outfitters as an allocator.

I have received several awards over my years in the education field.  I won the Silver Apple Award given through the Diocese of Wheeling Charleston IN 2017.

        In 2018 I received the Women of Distinction Award in Harrison County, and in 2019 I received the Italian Heritage Festival award for Educator of the Year.

It has been a blessing to have been able to spend so many years at a school I attended and one I love.
