•  I am very excited to be teaching at Tamaqua Elementary School and look forward to the 2023-2024 school year, I know it will be great!  I am excited to be starting my 16th year of teaching.  I am originally from Lake Village, IN. My hometown is located about an hour from Chicago, IL; therefore, I am a very loyal Chicago Cubs fan! 
        I am married to Jason Travis. Jason and I   We have three children.  Payton (16) loves to fish, hang out with his friends, and ride his four-wheeler. Payton  Owen (8) Owen loves to play in the dirt, build things, and Minecraft.  Addison (5)Addie and I loves to drive her mommy nuts! They keep me very busy! My Kids We also have a dog. Her name is Shelby and she is 9 years old.  Shelby  Our family loves going to a family cabin in Shunk, PA.  When we are there we spend a lot of time outside: we ride our four-wheelers, swim, and eat lots of smores around the campfire.  
    I enjoy playing with my children and spending time with my family.  My favorite place to vacation is the beach.  I love playing in the sun, reading a book, and listening to my favorite music.
