Noteworthy: Snyder received the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation Mister Rogers Memorial Scholarship, a $10,000 grant to help students develop projects in children's media.

Age: 32

Residence: Youngwood

Family: Husband, Travis.

Background: After spending several years as a behavior specialist and mobile therapist for children with developmental disabilities — primarily autism — contracting with churches, schools and camps, Snyder decided she wanted to go back to school to be a teacher.

Education: Bachelor of Science in developmental psychology, Penn State, 2003; master's degree in developmental psychology, University of Pittsburgh, 2005; working on a master's in early childhood education, Carlow University.

Quote: “I grew up with Mr. Rogers, and he was such a wonderful part of my childhood. I interned at the Children's Museum in 2005. ... They asked me to dust the puppets in the Mr. Rogers exhibit and I was so excited.”
