Rhonda Swihura, Paraprofessional
This is my 8th year at the middle school, and my first year as Ms. Kovach's classroom assistant.  In the mornings, I am out in the 7th grade classrooms as an instructional aide. In the afternoons, I am in Ms. Kovach's classroom  assisting with emotional and instructional support. I am looking forward to a year of many new challenges and rewards. It is so nice to come to work every day knowing that I am helping to make a difference in student's lives. 
I am married and have four children. My oldest son graduated from North Star in 2005, and UPJ in 2009 with a degree in Geography and works for Penndot as a Transportation Specialist, a daughter that graduated from North Star in 2012 and is a junior Physician Assistant major at Saint Francis University, a son that graduated in 2014 from North Star and is a freshman Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering major at Saint Francis University, and my youngest daughter who is a freshman at North Star High School. My husband retired from his job in New York City last fall and is now self employed.  I am very involved in our local AYSO, and also in the boys and girls soccer boosters.
 ...All our dreams can come true- if we have the courage to pursue them.
