About Ms. Underwood


    I taught at South Allegheny as an elementary teacher for 36 years. I received my B.S. and M.Ed from California University. Currently I am a substitute teacher at South Allegheny and coordinate the Newbery Award Reading Program at the South Allegheny Literacy Center. The love of Reading and Language instruction motivated me in the spring of 2009 to become certified by the Data Recognition Corporation to be a reader/scorer for State Assessments. I was employed by the South Allegheny School District for the 2009-2010 school year as the Differentiated Instruction Coach and for the 2010-2011 school year as the Literacy Coach.  I am a member of the Keystone State Reading Association,Three Rivers Reading Council,and the International Reading Association.Literacy is my passion and hobby. I am currently enrolled in Westminster College Graduate School in the Rreading Specialist Certification Program.
