    Hello! My name is Mrs. Lepperd. I am so excited to be teaching 6th grade Science again this year on Team Endeavour! This is my tenth year teaching science and I couldn't be happier to learn and explore together throughout this school year!  

     
    I was born in....
    Hershey but grew up in Palmyra


    I went to school/college....

    After High School in Palmyra I went to Penn State, Main Campus for my first undergrad degree, which is in History. GO LIONS!

    After Penn State, I decided to go back to school to get my teaching certification for elementary school K-6, which I completed at Temple University and I have my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Messiah College.

     

    When I went to school....
    I loved school! I tried to involve myself in a lot of extra-curriculars and loved being around my friends. School was always fun for me and I especially loved playing percussion in the band and writing for the school newspaper. 
     
    If I were not a teacher....

    A veterinarian, because I love animals, ESPECIALLY dogs :)



    I became a teacher ....

    My teachers were always part of the reason I loved school so much. They inspired me to want to be a teacher so I could help students love education as much as I did, and still do.



    My favorite teacher was....

    Mr. Miller – My AP U.S. History and AP European History teacher in high school. He knew so much about history, told funny stories, and was always interested in getting to know about us as students. I always looked forward to going to his class. 



    Hobby....
    I love hanging out with my family and my dogs. I also really enjoy camping, cooking and going to sporting events!

    I like to watch the Yankees, the Steelers and Redskins, and of course – Penn State football!

    I love to read in my free time. My favorite books are usually fiction novels but I have a variety of books from many genres in my library. 

    I love to vacation....
    I also go to OCNJ with my family every summer and visit my best friend in Pittsburgh as much as I can!
     
    My favorite food....
    Cheeseburgers, Pizza, Pierogies and Gyros!
     
    I would most like to meet....
