About Mrs. Kane
         I'm a 1993 graduate from Tamaqua Area.  I attended Penn State University. I graduated in 1997.  Since graduation I have had many different teaching experiences. 
         The year following Penn State I subsituted for a year.  The following year I taught kindergarten at a catholic school in Jim Thorpe.  Next, I taught second grade in West Penn Elementary here in the Tamaqua Area School District.  Then I finally got a full-time position in Schuylkill Haven Area School District teaching third grade.   I loved it there.  However, I wanted to be closer to home to start a family.  I was hired here at Tamaqua Elementary in August of 2002.  The rest is history.  I've been teaching first grade here ever since.
         I have many loves in my life.  The first three are my husband, Jamie, my daughter, Makenna and my son, Luke.  We love to spend time together at sporting events. My final love are my students.  They are "my children" for 180 days.  They are my extended family.
         Finally, I would like to welcome you into my classroom.  We are going to be doing a lot of fun things throughout this school year.  If you have any questions for me, I can be reached via email: dkane@tamaquasd.org or you can call the school at (570) 668-3306.  I can be reached from 8 am - 3:30 pm.  If you call during the school day please leave a message with the secretary and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
