    Ms. Appler








    Ms. Appler graduated from Kutztown University and Wilkes University.  She provides an environment that is safe, comfortable and that maximizes the opportunity for all students to learn. If students are in a place where they feel safe and comfortable, then valuable learning can take place. The atmosphere/energy of the classroom is positive and inviting for all.  Students learn in different ways so there are variety of opportunities for student learning within the classroom such has whole group learning, small group learning, and individual learning. Students will have the opportunity participate in hands-on activities that are very engaging.  Her passions outside of teaching are cooking/baking, reading, animals (mostly dogs), and most importantly her son, Kaiden, who is involved in a variety of sports. We also enjoy camping and hiking.  She has been teaching in the Harrisburg School District for the past 14 years. Her favorite color is purple.

    Ms. Ziegler graduated from East Stroudsburg University.  She describes the atmosphere/energy of the her classroom as a community which will strive to work together to achieve our best.  The energy level could range from busy to calm-depending on our activities.  In her classroom, she develops a foundation of learning for educational careers.  When leaving Kindergarten the goal is to have a strong foundation through the experiences we have explored through a prosocial educational philosophy (which includes critical thinking, student-centered, social and emotional skills, perspective taking, and self-management). Ms.Ziegle would love for her students to develop a thirst for learning.
