James H. Metzgar Elementary

Title 1 Program


Here is a little bit about me.  I graduated from Greensburg Salem in 1999.  I then went on to Penn State University to obtain my degree in Elementary Education.  After graduating in 2003, I came back to Greensburg.  I was a reading specialist intern at Hutchinson Elementary while working towards my reading specialist certification at the University of Pittsburgh.  I was hired at Greensburg Salem the year after to teach Kindergarten at Nicely and Metzgar.  The next year, I became the reading specialist at Metzgar and I have been in that position ever since and loving every minute of it. 

I love helping students become more confident with their reading skills!  If you ever have any questions for me or any concerns about your child's reading ability, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I can be reached by email, phone, or we can set up a meeting.

How can you be involved in your child's education? 

There are many ways to be involved at Metzgar!  One way is to join the PTA

Another way is by completing our Metzgar Parent & Family Engagement Survey and volunteering to be a part of our Parent Advisory Council.


The Role of the Parental Involvement Advisory Council:
• Attend the Advisory Council Meetings
