Teresa Ream, Board Secretary (in her words)  

I was born, many, many years ago in Oak Hill, WVa.  I moved from Paintsville, Ky. to Emporium, Pa in 1971. and worked very hard to eliminate my southern accent.  However, even after all these years I still have a few stubborn clingers…Pin (Pen), Limon (Lemon), etc.
I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh, majoring in Science.  I earned a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Pittsburgh, and most recently acquired a K-12 Principal’s Certification from Edinboro University.
I am currently employed, by the Cameron County School District, as the 5th and 6th Grade Science Teacher, and have held that position for the past 19 years. After these many years in the classroom, I am most proud of the fact that I have only been called the “B” word twice!
My husband, Jeff, and I have been married for almost 27 years (August), and have two children. Joe is the oldest son, and is in the United States Coast Guard, stationed in Corpus Christi Texas.  Mitch is the baby. He will graduate from The Villanova School of Law this May. He has been hired by a law firm in Buffalo, NY. Phewww!!
My first experience with HMI occurred during the planning of a tribute concert for Sue Beveridge.  Miss Beveridge was my music teacher throughout high school. I admired her very much, and was happy to do whatever I could to help out.
I am looking forward to continuing being a part of this worthwhile organization, as a Board Member.  Emporium was a great, small town to grow up in. I’ve made many life-long friends here, raised my children here, work here, and I am happy to be part of an organization that sees Emporium as a great place too!

  9. Everything posted was very logical. However, think about this,
    what if you typed a catchier title? I am not suggesting your information isn’t solid., but suppose you
    added a post title to possibly get people’s attention? I mean Jim Wendel of
    Emporium, PA takes the President’s gavel for HMI – Encouragement for the
    Future of Emporium, Cameron County, PA is a little vanilla.

    You could look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how
    they create article titles to get people to click.
    You might add a video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve
    got to say. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
