My name is Norma, and I have been working for Easterseals for 15 years. I first started at Easterseals when my two adopted children, who have special needs were attending and I would drive them every day.
I enjoy working in the Zebra room at the Child Development Center in Easterseals' State College Division as a personal care aide! I love being able to watch all of the children and help them learn and grow. Outside of Easterseals, I like spending time with my children and grandchildren. My husband and I also love camping, especially at the Great Grange Fair!
Hi, my name is Emily Newby and I am the lead teacher of the Lion Cub Room at the Child Development Center in Easterseals' State College Division. I have been working at Easterseals since January 2013, when I started as an intern in the Lion Cub room.
I graduated from Penn State in May 2013, with a B.S. in Kinesiology and a minor in Human Development and Family Studies. Since then, I have spent time in both the Elephant Room and the Zebra Room, before returning to the Lion Cubs on November 2016. I became the lead teacher in January 2018 and absolutely love it. This is my favorite age to work with and love seeing the kids grow throughout the year.
When I am not at work, I love being outside and going on adventures, anywhere I can go. My hobbies also include reading, archery, coloring, doing puzzles and spending time with my family and 2 cats.
