My name is Tyler Graver and I am a senior here at West Chester University.

Hello, my name is Jessica Peoples. I am currently a junior here at West Chester University. I am majoring in Middles Grades Preparation with concentrations in reading and mathematics. Here at West Chester University, I am a WCU Life Skills Ambassador; meaning that I teach others the various different methods to guide them in making the best financial decisions possible. After I graduate, I am extremely excited about the opportunity to work with children, and have the ability to watch them learn and grow just as I did as a student.
