About Me

Welcome to Kindergarten!  My name is Genevieve Finley and I am a 1/2 day Academic teacher here at the Kindergarten Center.  I just finished my twelfth
year of teaching and am lucky enough to have started my career here.  It is a great place to be and I am hoping to be here until I retire.  I grew up down the road in Collegeville and went to Perkiomen Valley High School.  For college, I attended Lebanon Valley College in Annville PA (just minutes from Hershey) and quickly fell in love with the idea of teaching.  When I got married, my husband (who grew up in Phoenixville) and I both agreed that we wanted our twins to attend Phoenixville School District so I live and work in the district.   When I graduated college, I ran a before and after school program for the YMCA. After 6 months I realized that I really wanted to be in the classroom and started substitute teaching for different schools in the area.  I am very lucky that our former principal liked what she saw in me and offered me a position as a Long Term Substitute.  From there, I received a part time contract and then after a long three years, finally was offered full time.  I truly believe that any child who attends the Kindergarten Center is very lucky.  I work and am friends with a group of teachers who are invested in their students' future not to mention outstanding educators.  I look forward to getting to know my students and starting our adventure together.  Please feel free to email me at any time with concerns or questions (finleyg@pasd.com )
I
will be happy to talk with you.
