Ms. Pecora

¡Hola a todos!

     My name is Paige Pecora and I am from Seward, PA. I graduated from Ligonier Valley High School and I went on to study at Saint Vincent College C’15 where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Education. I also competed on the Bearcat swim team as a sprint freestyler. Swimming has been a huge part of my life, and I am pleased to be able to continue my career as the head coach here at Cambria Heights.  I recently earned my Masters degree in Instructional Design and Technology at IUP, where I learned valuable techniques for creating interactive elements for online learning.

     During the summer after my junior year at SVC, I studied abroad in Valparaíso, Chile in South America for six weeks. I stayed with a wonderful host family who I still keep in contact with, and I spent much of the time traveling the country while taking classes at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso. While I was in Chile, I traveled throughout the dynamic landscape and went on many excursions in an attempt to fit everything I could into a brief six week visit. I also traveled to Costa Rica as a chaperone for a middle school field trip. It was such a rewarding and enjoyable experience, and the students gained a huge appreciation for Hispanic culture. If you ever have the chance to study abroad, I highly recommend that you take advantage of the opportunity! I promise that you will learn so much and that it will be an experience that you will never forget.

     Second language acquisition is a significant advantage for students that want to become well-rounded and educated individuals, and I want to share my passion of the language and culture with my students. I am so excited to work with you this year! Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and I look forward to meeting you very soon!

Sinceramente,

Señorita Pecora
