About Me!

My name is Mrs. Ottaway! I am a Kindergarten Teacher here at Wattsburg Area Elementary Center. In 2010 I graduated from Mercyhurst North East with my Associates degree in Early Childhood Education. I moved to Florida that summer after I graduated and worked as a preschool teacher, I came home in the fall and continued my education at Mercyhurst Main Campus working on my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education. I did my student teaching in first grade here at Wattsburg and enjoyed the small class sizes and rich learning environment. I graduated in 2012 and became a substitute teacher in several of the districts around the WNY and NW PA areas. I spent most of my time as a substitute at Wattsburg in the Elementary Center, it felt like home. In 2015, I took a preschool lead teacher position and began working on my Masters Degree. In 2016 I had the opportunity to come back to Wattsburg as a long term substitute in Kindergarten. After two years of being a long term substitute a permanent position opened up in the classroom I had been in for the previous two years. In 2018 I was hired permanently in Kindergarten. I have a passion for Early Childhood Education - Kindergarten is the foundation - where it all begins! So much learning and development happens in the first year of school. I love teaching, creating a literacy rich environment, making connections, and most importantly making learning fun!
