The 2021-2022 school year will mark my 25th year teaching at Upper Merion Area High School. Previously, I taught at Elizabethtown High School in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania for two years. Primarily, I have instructed tenth grade English, but this year I am anticipating a new position as an instructional coach. I received my bachelors degree from University of Delaware in English Education and my masters degree from West Chester University in English. I am proud to be a co-class sponsor for the class of 2024. I also facilitate Upper Merion's Mini-THON to raise funds for pediatric cancer, have served as a primary author/editor for the 2001 Blue Ribbon process, and was part of the Classroom for the Future initiative. In 2014, I was honored to represent Upper Merion Area School district as a finalist for the Voices of Inspiration Award and in 2015 I received the Outstanding Service Award for the Greater Philadelphia Cappies Theater Program. I am a Google Certified Educator Level 1,Level 2 and Trainer, Flipgrid Certified 1 and 2, and Flipgrid Ambassador. In 2017, I represented Upper Merion Area HS as a Keystone Technology Innovator Star. In 2018 I was selected Teacher of the Year in the High School by the King of Prussia Rotary Club. I presented to fellow educators at the 2019 and 2020 Pet&C technology conventions and was a co-presenter with Ms. Bontempo at ISTE in Philadelphia in 2020. In the fall of 2021 I will be presenting again at PCTELA, a state conference for English teachers. In my free time, I've been known to cheer my son on in cross country and jazz band, visit Sea Isle City, walk my dog in Heuser park, and read voraciously (currently reading Firekeeper's Daughter).Mrs. Ebersole's ScheduleHomeroom: Student CouncilTeachers can sign up for meeting times by accessing my Google calendar.
