    Mrs. Darlene Buckwalter

    6th Grade STEM Teacher

      

       I love to involve my students in hands-on learning and help them discover the wonders of science. 

    I was born in...

    Lancaster and grew up on a farm in Mount Joy with my six siblings.

      

    I went to college...

    at Millersville University to earn my Bachelor of Science in Education.  I am currently taking courses to earn a Master's in Education.

     

    When I was in school...

    I had the opportunity in sixth grade to help a fifth-grade teacher in class for a few days.  This was when I discovered my love for teaching, and I knew I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up!

     

    My favorite subject...

    was science in high school.  I enjoyed my chemistry and advanced chemistry class.  I will never forget the many hours I worked on my science projects for the Lancaster Science & Engineering Fairs every year in high school.  One year, I was excited to win an award from the American Society for Metals.

     

    I love to vacation...

    at Cape May, NJ and Whitefish, MT.

     

    My favorite food...

    is steak or prime rib!  You might find some chocolate covered raisins and Butterfingers in my desk drawer! :)

     

    I enjoy...

    spending time with my family.  I especially enjoy family dinners when we can sit, talk, laugh, and enjoy each other!
