    Welcome to my page! My name is Janelle Kurtz-Crilley, and this is my first year teaching 4th grade at Candlebrook. I studied Spanish at Arcadia University before completing my Masters of Science in Education at the University of Pennsylvania. I taught Learning Support for grades Kindergarten-3rd grade for two years in Philadelphia before coming to the Upper Merion Area School District last year as a 4th grade Long Term Substitute at Bridgeport Elementary School.

    In my free time I like to run, go on walks with my dog, read, and spend time at the beach. 

    I am looking forward to a year of learning and adventure in 4th grade! Please contact me by email with any questions or concerns. I check my email multiple times a day, and will respond as soon as possible!
