I want to try again to introduce the new pediatric representative for our district. I had her last name incorrect in the last email. Amanda Poremba has graciously agreed to fill that role.  She currently works for Canton City Schools.  She graduated from West Virginia University and has been an OT for 6 years with 4 years experience in schools. Prior to OT she had been a teacher.   

Ashley Pinkerton is going to help Amanda with the pediatric SIS for the district.  She graduated from Tennessee State University with a masters in occupational therapy in 2011.  She has worked in early intervention before starting in the Nashville Public Schools for 4 years.  She moved back home to Ohio in the fall of 2017 where she contracted 1 year at Akron Public Schools. She is proud to be working for her alumni Canton City Schools.
