Hello, my name is Melanie Shaver-Durham and I am privileged to serve as the principal of this amazing school. This is me:
I am a 1991 graduate of Penn State University Park with a degree in Elementary Education. I went on to obtain my Master's in Teaching and Curriculum and my Reading Specialist certification from Penn State Harrisburg. I also hold Elementary Supervisor, K-12 Principal and Superintendent's Letter of Eligibility certifications from Shippensburg University.
My first teaching job was in York City School District as a 1st grade teacher. I later became an elementary reading specialist, then a K-12 Reading Supervisor in Cumberland Valley School District. Before coming to West Creek Hills, I served as the Director of Elementary Education for Lower Dauphin School District.
I am blessed to be married to my wonderful husband, Mitch Durham, and have two great kids-Lucy, a sophmore at George Washington University, and Joey, a junior at Penn State Harrisburg.
Here is me with my family:
If I haven't met you yet, please introduce yourself next time you see me. I am looking forward to meeting you!
