My name is Maureen Straka. I am a Reading Specialist for grades 3-5 at both McNichols Plaza and John F. Kennedy Schools. I have been working as a Reading Specialist for the past 4 years and formerly taught third grade at Kennedy school. I have been teaching in the Scranton School District for the past 19 years and have really enjoyed working with the wonderful students in our district. I am looking forward to another great year with our kids here at McNichols Plaza.
