    My name is Janelle Kurtz-Crilley (Mrs. K-C), and I am so excited for the 2023-2024 school year! This will be my 8th year teaching and my 5th year at Candlebrook Elementary. 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 in Philadelphia before coming to the Upper Merion Area School District. 

    In my free time I like to go on walks with my family, learn about new languages and cultures, 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.
