Students from South Eastern Middle School 8th Grade Social Studies Honors Class competed in the National History Day in Pennsylvania Regional Contest at Kutztown University for Lancaster, Lebanon, Berks, and York Counties on March 3, 2018.

Matthew Grohal, Ian McPherson, and James Hook placed first in Group Documentary-Conway’s Cabal, and Kacie Ally placed first in Individual Documentary. 

Kacie Alley, Matthew Grohal, Ian McPherson, and James Hook went on to compete in the National History Day in Pennsylvania State Contest which was held at Carlisle High School on May 11, 2018.  These students were recognized for their outstanding achievement.


On May 31, 2018 South Eastern School District began the first venture in a partnership with Johnson Controls International.  Mechanical Engineers, Lindsey King and Betsy Brown, visited the district to assist with judging the May STEAM Challenge.  This monthly challenge involved using 8 sheets of paper and tape to see who could create the tallest (yet stable) structure.  Our SESD Technology Innovators, Stephanie Coleman, Abbey Lichtenberg, and James Waltermyer received a grant from the York Community Foundation to provide funding for resources used for these competitions.


The Class of 2018 had a wonderful time this year at their class Lock-in and Field Day, made possible by these community business partners, as well as the generous additional donations of many senior parents.  The Class of 2018 wishes to thank these community businesses for sponsoring and donating to their senior activities, and making their final moments in high school so memorable: Ray Crowley Window and Door Repair, Martin’s Potato Chips, Geneva Farm Golf Course, Nathanson Dental, Golden’s Taxidermy, Subway-Whiteford, Chik-Fil-A, Cedar Valley Pizzeria, Sons of Sicily, Big Apple Bagel, The Pit Shack, Rita’s Italian Ice, and Pepsi.  Again, without the generous assistance given by these community businesses, this year’s senior activities would not have been nearly as successful.  When you visit these businesses, please thank them on behalf of the Class of 2018.


I am honored and excited to be serving as the Assistant Superintendent of the South Eastern School District.  I am passionate about student learning, leading, and continuous improvement.  I look forward to working together to support our mission of Providing Progressive Education to Strengthen the Global Community.

I was born and raised in Mercersburg, Pennsylvania in Franklin County.  My father taught for 39 years, my mother was a registered nurse, and my sister is a physical education teacher at two elementary schools in West Virginia.  I loved learning and teaching and followed in my family’s footsteps of becoming an educator.  After graduating from James Buchanan High School, I attended Shippensburg University where I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Education degree, majoring in elementary education K-6 and minoring in reading.  I was honored to be able to teach at both districts where I did my student teaching, Chambersburg Area School District and Greencastle-Antrim School District.  I taught English at Chambersburg Middle School and Science at Greencastle-Antrim Middle School.  While teaching, I went back to Shippensburg University to obtain my Master of Educational Leadership and Policy to obtain my Principal K-12 certificate.  I then had the privilege of being hired as an administrator in my home district, Tuscarora School District, where I served as an administrator for 13 years in the roles of Elementary Principal, Curriculum Director, and Acting Superintendent.   While serving as an administrator, I continued my education at Duquesne University in the Interdisciplinary Doctor of Education and obtained both my Superintendent’s Letter of Eligibility and Doctorate.

I am excited to continue my journey in education here at South Eastern School District.  I have appreciated all of the support and encouragement from friends, family, colleagues, and mentors along this journey.  I would like to thank my husband, Kevin, for his continued support.  Kevin and I are high school sweethearts and will soon be celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary.  After high school he went to the Marines, following his father, Colonel Sanders’ footsteps.  He then went to school to become a Physician Assistant and has been working at Waynesboro Emergency Room for the past 14 years.  We both are excited to be joining the community and want to thank everyone for the warm welcome.​
