My name is Amy Trapani. I am a 4th grade Reading and Language Arts Teacher at
East Union Intermediate School. I have been teaching in the Deer Lakes School District since 2001. Previously, I worked for the Westmoreland IU/ Kiski School District. I have also worked at Pressley Ridge School and Paula Teachers Association as a TSS working with students and adults who struggle with severe Autism. I give back to my community by educating others about animal care and welfare and raising funds for various charities. I have served on the Board of Directors for an animal shelter for 13 years and actively volunteered on a variety of committees for over 17years. Currently, I volunteer for Kiski Valley Cat and Kitten Rescue and Distinguished Doberman Rescue. I was the adult ambassador for the Student of the Year 2022 campaign for LLS! Our team, Team Wish raised $106, 817.00 and collected 6,668 pairs of shoes! I enjoy coaching soccer, volunteering, shopping, and spending time with my family.
