Hello! My name is Tania Germino and I am a Reading Specialist at TAES where I once attended school myself.
- Graduate of Tyrone Area High School
- Graduate of Penn State University with Bachelor's degree in Kindergarten and Elementary Education
- Graduate of Edinboro University with Master's degree in Reading and Literacy with a K-12 Reading Specialist Certificate
- Taught preschool phonics and math enrichment
- Taught Elementary and Early Childhood Education courses for the College of Education at Penn State University
- PreK-4 Student Teaching Supervisor in the Philipsburg Area School District
One of my favorite things about being a reading specialist is being able to help students gain confidence and excitement in their abilities and achievements as readers and to collaborate with other teachers and specialists.
Outside of school, I reside in Tyrone with my husband Matt, my 3 children, and my two dogs and cat. I enjoy being outdoors, Harry Potter marathons, watching my children in sports and dance, and am an avid coffee drinker.
