    All About Me This will be my seventh year at Candlebrook and I am back to teaching third grade! I am so excited for another year of fun and engaging learning experiences. My main focus is to build a classroom community and form positive student relationships. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education/Early Childhood PK-4 from Shippensburg University in 2013. I was a member of the cheerleading squad all four years. I graduated last August with my Master's Degree in Social and Emotional Learning from Neumann University. I have formed such a passion for what I learned in my master's program and am looking forward to applying all of it to my classroom this year! I'm actually looking forward to continue my education in Social and Emotional Learning because it is so important for our children. I cannot wait to have a wonderful and successful school year with your child!  Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time. The best way to contact me is through email sdifebbo@umasd.org.
