Meet Mrs. Depew
I will be your child's math, science, and health teacher this school year.
Mrs. Helphenstine, who will teach your child ELA and Social Studies, and I
are looking forward to a wonderful year of learning and fun in the 4th grade!
I strongly encourage an open line of communication between families and
teachers. Email is the best way to reach me and I will do my best to
get back to you as soon as possible. [email protected]
I grew up in Penn Trafford and went to Penn State University in State College to major in Elementary Education. Following graduation, I continued my studies at Clarion University, attaining my Masters Degree in Reading Education. I began teaching in the Baltimore County Public School System. There, I taught fourth and fifth grades, as well as gifted, for 6 years. Also during this time, I attended Goucher College and completed their school leadership certification program. I began my teaching career in the Norwin School District in 2010 and love being a part of this wonderful school district!
Hobbies and Family
Two of my favorite things are the arts and athletics. I especially love painting and drawing. In addition, I love reading mystery novels and fiction in general. As a teacher, it is so much fun when I can connect the arts to our core subjects, like math and science!
Sports are also a large part of my life and I love to stay active by jogging and hiking with my children. Watching sports is also a hobby of mine and I love cheering on the Steelers, Pirates, and the Penn State Nittany Lions.
My husband and I have three children. Max will be in third grade, Sammy will be in first grade, and Josephine will start her second year of pre-school. We are expecting our 4th child this Septemeber. We also have two cats, Cookie and Candy Cane.
