About Me: Miss Abbie

Hello All,
        My name is Abbie Standley, and I will be working with your child for the rest of the summer!! J I am currently a member of the KEYS Service Corps (Americorps), and have actively been working with youth in the Pittsburgh area all summer. I am happy and privileged to be on board at Brashear (ALEC).
            To give you a little more background on myself, I recently graduated with a B.A. in Early Childhood Education/Special Education from Waynesburg University. I am extremely passionate about working with youth, and wanted to expand my horizons, by working with inner-city youth. I am a “transplant” to PA, as I am originally from Columbus, Ohio. I moved here nearly five years ago for college, and never left.
            One of the things that I really try and remind myself, is that I was once a child, too. So I really try and tap into that side, and use that to connect to children of all ages. I truly believe this is key in getting to know them on their level.

            In my free time I really enjoy hanging out at new coffee shops, or helping my Mom on her farm. I love being outside! I take advantage of any chance I can get, to just be outside and/or go on an adventure to some foreign place.

I look forward to getting to know this new group of kids better! Here’s to an awesome rest of summer! J
