Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Summers-Wende



In September I accepted the full-time substitute position in the Home and Career Skills Department here in Lancaster.  The 7th grade curriculum I will be teaching will include Career Exploration, Consumerism and Family Relations.


Previously I taught Family and Consumer Science part-time grades 6, 7, and 8, at Alden Middle School.


Like most people in today’s world, I have experienced career shifts that have given me a remarkable perspective on careers and the world of work.


I have worked as an employee and consultant in marketing communications and development for a variety of industries. I served as a member of the Greater Buffalo Chamber of Commerce marketing team, and headed the Buffalo Niagara Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Communications Department for fifteen years. I also held positions as the Director of Public Relations for the American Red Cross Greater Buffalo Chapter and Lockport Hospital and as the Director of Development for Mercy Flight, WNY.


I look forward to helping you discover your career path and exploring where academics meet real life.
