Readers Are Leaders

Mowrie A. Ebner Elementary is fortunate to have 2 Title I Instructional Support Teachers.  I am one of them.  I teach children how to read better and to talk about what they have read.  I am blessed to be a part of Ebner, as I have always loved working here.
 
For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be at teacher.  I graduated from Penn State University with my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.  I started my career as a substitute teacher before getting a 1 year position as a 2nd grade teacher at Juniata Elementary.  I was then hired at Ebner as a 6th grade teacher for 3 years, during which I completed my Master of Education degree from St. Francis University.  I then spent one year at the former Washington & Jefferson Elementary as a PSSA/Technology Coach.  After leaving there, I returned to Ebner to teach 3rd grade for 4 years.  When our former Instructional Coach, Mrs. Grassmyer, resigned, I stepped into the role of Instructional Coach/Title I Teacher, and this is my third year in this role.  I have embraced every position change that has come my way.  I will never know what the future holds, so I try to make the best of each new role I am given.    :-)
