I have a B.A. in Philosophy from Saint Francis University where I graduated in 2011. In addition to my Bachelors, I have major coursework in Elementary/Special Education; I also have a minor in Ethics. If needed, I have experience working in elderly care as well. During the past two summers, I have been an instructor at Penn State Kid's College, teaching/designing classes ranging from preschool age to 9th grade. I am dedicated to providing holistic care and support--ranging from creativity and play to nutrition. Kindness, authenticity, courage, and personal responsibility are virtues that I value and commit to live. Teaching and supporting others to become their true selves Read more is what I am most passionate about in life.
