Miss Jill, Morning Teacher
Jill Felter

My husband and I live near Grantville with our three kids (ages 16, 13 and 10). I was a Child Development major at Michigan State University and taught Pre-K and Kindergarten before leaving to be home with my own children. I started at DDD in 2015 and this is my third year as Lead Teacher in the Butterfly room. When I am not with my preschoolers, I spend time at my kids’ sporting events and activities or visiting our out-of-state family. I enjoy being outdoors and the beach is my happy place. I am thrilled to be working to support the growth and development of young children in our community.

My friends call me Miss Kat. I have been with Derry Discovery Days since 2013. I am a wife and mom of a son and a daughter. I enjoy watching my preschoolers grow and sharing that growth with their parents. Outside of teaching I enjoy photography as a side business, traveling, chocolate, and most of all making people smile.

Miss Pam, Teacher Aide, Morning and Afternoon Classes
Pam van Wyk

I live in the Hershey area and have been a part of this wonderful community for the past five years. I am mom to two children. My daughter is starting second grade and my son will be starting full day kindergarten. I am enrolled at HACC to get my CDA [Child Development Associate] certification. I am excited to spend time with the Butterflies and watch them grow. When I’m not taking my kids to their different activities, I enjoy camping with my family, singing, cooking, and reading. I am very excited to join the Derry Discovery Days team.
