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. Snyder plans to create an application for teachers to use in the classroom to help track students' behavior and offer them rewards for meeting their goals.

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.”
