Brief Biography: Ms. Andress was inspired to teach by her experiences with students. “Watching children learn in different ways inspired me to work in education,” she explains. Prior to coming to PALCS, she taught at Calvary Christian Academy for seven years, Penndale Middle School for one year, and Christopher Dock Mennonite High School for seven years.
In addition to teaching at PALCS, Ms. Andress is also an online adjunct professor at Ohio Christian University. She appreciates PALCS for the way she gets to work with students individually. “I love helping students one-on-one,” she says, “because it really focuses learning for each individual student.” She also loves learning new Educational Technology tools.
Outside of PALCS, Ms. Andress is married with two children. She loves to garden, swim, and watch the Price is Right.
