Meet the Turtle Staff:
Miss Rachel, Teacher
I live in Palmyra with my husband, our two kids who are 10 and 7 and our beagle, Willa. This is my fifth year working at Derry Discovery Days. In my free time, I enjoy watching all of my children’s sporting activities, reading new books, drinking coffee, taking care of my many (many) plants and snuggling on the couch to watch a good movie. I am so happy to be part of Derry Discovery Days and to help our Turtle Class grow and flourish!
Miss Rachel, Teacher Aide
My children attended DDD preschool from the Turtle to the Butterfly class. My son is now in second grade and my daughter is in kindergarten. I am married and live on a ten-acre farmette with a few chickens, ducks and a dog. Prior to deciding to stay at home with my children and watch others, I worked as a nurse. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, gardening, shopping, drinking coffee, and most of all, spending time with my family. I love Derry Discovery Days and am so happy to be a part of this great preschool.
Miss Haifa, Teacher Aide
I live in the Hershey area with my husband and three sons. I enjoy volunteering in the local schools, cooking, walking and spending time with family and friends. I love working with children and seeing them learn and grow. I am so happy to be a part of the Derry Discovery Days team.
