Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Mrs. Gettle and I am honored to be a Polar Bear. This is my first year as an Instructional Coach at Northern, but my 25th year of teaching. I have taught third, fourth, and fifth grade. I was also an Instructional Support Teacher, Reading Specialist and Literacy Coach. I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania so I am a huge Pittsburgh sports fan. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Pittsburgh, and my graduate degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Penn State University. In addition, I earned a literacy coaching certificate from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. I live in York with my husband Jeff, Natalie (daughter), and Cleo (my goldendoodle). In my free time, I like to exercise and spend time with family and friends. I am thrilled to be a part of Polar Bear Nation!
