Miss Genchur

Welcome to second grade! I am so excited to be your child's teacher.

This will be my fourth year teaching second grade in the district and my third year at DES. I grew up in Mechanicsburg and graduated from the University of Pittsburgh. There, I completed two years of student teaching in a variety of classrooms including placements in pre-K, first grade, and life skills. 

Outside of school, I love spending time with my family, friends, and my dog, Oliver, who has become a celebrity in our classroom! I am a huge Pittsburgh sports fan and always root for the Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins. I also enjoy spending time outside, working on creative projects, and reading.  

I love watching students build confidence in themselves and their skills, and I look forward to working with you and your child this school year. Please don't hesitate to reach out at any point with questions or concerns. I'm confident we can work together to make second grade a positive and memorable year for your child!
