Ms. Palenchar


Hi everyone! My name is Ms. Palenchar and I'd like to tell you a bit about myself.

I was born and raised in Allentown, PA. I graduated from Temple University with a Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology, so I lived in Philadelphia for 4 years exploring the rich culture and diversity there while I went to school.

Then, I got married and had two beautiful girls. We do everything together, including the PA Renaissance Faire, various Comic Cons, beaches, and concerts. We are major nerds! I also always believe that traveling is a large way to gain knowledge about the world!

I continued my education at Kutztown University, gaining my Masters of Education in Social Studies 7-12 because of my love of sharing knowledge and working with adolescents. In fact, one of my core beliefs is that one should never stop learning! Lastly, I'm an advocate for open communication with parents and students, so please feel free to contact me with whatever you may need.
