MEET OUR DYNAMIC TEACHERS

At MTC, our amazing teachers set high expectations for their students and do not give up on any child who is struggling to meet them.  They are equally organized and adaptable – both accountable to MTC’s curriculum standards and to the diversity of their classrooms.  Our teachers – rich in educational achievement, valuable certifications and deep experience in their respective fields / grade levels – challenge and engage students, forming creative thinking environments.  In turn they ask students to ask “why” and challenge the status quo.  They build classrooms forged in respectful relationships amongst the students and are acutely in tune with possible threats to children’s well being, be it bullying or otherwise.  Finally, our faculty insist on openness and transparency with parents, communicating often around performance, calendars, expectations, etc.

I spend my days teaching precious three year olds and I love every minute of it!  Our classroom is full of fun and happiness but we learn quite a lot, too!  We learn to make friends and share all the while learning our letters, numbers, shapes and colors, etc.  I p[-z have been teaching for seventeen years and each year another class captures my heart.  I am looking forward to meeting my new students and beginning our journey together.  See you in PK3!

ROSE SCHUEGLER

KINDERGARTEN

Greetings from MTC Kindergarten-where every day is a fun-filled learning adventure!  My name is Rosemarie Schwegler, and I am delighted to be the kindergarten teacher this year.  It’s hard to believe, but this is my 42nd year teaching in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. It is my 30th year teaching here at MDP/MTC where I have been blessed to meet so many extraordinary children and parents over the years. Additionally, it has been exciting and heartwarming to teach the children of some of my former MDP students.   During my career, I have had the opportunity to gain experience teaching students on every grade level from K-8, including Honors Math and Honors English. Although I have enjoyed every grade level, I must admit that kindergarten is the best grade to teach! I began my journey to becoming a teacher when I  attended Penn State University and Temple University where I earned a B.S. in Elementary Education.  I returned to Temple University for my graduate work in the area of Psychology of Reading. I have an active PA Department of Education Instructional II Teaching Certificate and religion certification from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.  My husband and I live in Montgomery County with our dog, cat, and two horses.  We enjoy bike riding at the beach and on the Montgomery County Bike Trail.
