Roxanne’s Professional Story

My proudest professional moment was when I achieved my Pennsylvania National Board Certification in 2009. Working on my board certification was challenging and, at times, a daunting task, however, with hard work, dedication, and tenacity my efforts paid off. The experience encouraged me to hone my teaching strategies and improve my craft as an educator. It was a win for me . . .  but a bigger win for my students.

"Rox is a teacher’s teacher, an administrator’s go-to, a mentor to aspiring teachers, a parent’s frend, and a student’s advocate."
