Ms. Iticovici


My journey began with an intense interest in and love of the natural world from a young age.  I studied biology primarily to understand how and why organisms behave as they do and later sought to share my passion and insights with young people.  I attended Penn State, where my studies focused on wildlife biology, after which I gained experience in the veterinary medical field, both as a veterinary nurse and a laboratory animal technician.  After the birth of my children, I attended Kutztown University to focus on education and have been teaching since 2012.  

 I love to spend my spare time with family, playing piano, bird-watching, and breeding fancy mice!  I also enjoy creative writing and hope to have an epic science fiction saga published at some point in the future!    But most of all, I love working with students and helping them grow academically, as they discover their own passions in life!

Favorite Thing About Teaching At PAAHS

My favorite thing about teaching is the students!  My favorite thing about Pen Argyl is our strong sense of community which is founded upon the values of kindness, integrity, diversity, and determination.  We are all here to help each other learn and grow!
