About Me

Welcome! 

I am looking forward to a great year working with and getting to know your child!

This is my second year teaching at the Kindergarten Center!  I am beginning my sixth year of teaching.  I taught first grade in the Perkiomen Valley School District prior to coming to Phoenixville and then stayed at home with my three sons: Jake, Robbie, and Colin.   I resumed my career in teaching and had the opportunity to work in all three of our elementary buildings: East Pikeland, Barkley, and Schuylkill Elementary Schools.  I am so glad to have found my permanent home here at the Kindergarten Center and feel so lucky to be working with your kids!

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Penn State University.  I earned my Master’s Degree in Literacy from West Chester University where I also received my Reading Specialist certification.

 

Some Fun Facts About Me:

*I grew up in King of Prussia, PA and now live in Collegeville.

 *I love to run!    One of the coolest experience of my life was running in the Boston Marathon!

*I have a cockatiel named Cooper who loves to talk and sing.  His favorite song is “If you’re happy and you know it.”

 

I know we will have a great year in Kindergarten!  Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions!  My email address is sturgesk@pasd.com.
