Meet Your 6 - Red Teachers....
Mrs. Wendy King - (6 Red Team Captain, morning bus supervisor, Language Arts)
It has been my dream since I was a little girl to become a teacher. Twenty one years ago my dream came true. KVMS and sixth grade have been my home from day one. I attended East Stroudsburg University and graduated with an elementary degree. Years later I went back to school and received my Master's Degree from West Chester University.
I grew up right around the corner and attended Upper Moreland High School. I am an only child. I have been married to my husband, Eric for sixteen years. We have two beautiful daughters; Brianna who is fourteen years old and Skylar who is eleven. Both are competitive gymnasts. Our family are huge Flyers fans as well as Dallas Cowboy fans!
In my free time I enjoy scrapbooking and reading different novels. In the summer I love spending time at the beach. I am truly looking forward to a wonderful year with your children!
Mrs. Trachtenberg - (Math)
I am excited to teach 6th grade math, after spending several years as a 7th grade math teacher. Prior to teaching, I worked as a certified public accountant. I have always liked working with numbers and hope to show my students how much fun math can be! I earned my Bachelor Degree from the University of Maryland and Master Degree from Holy Family College.
I am married to my husband Mike and have two sons, Steve who is a junior in high school and Jake who is a 7th grader. Spending time with my family makes me happy; especially watching the boys play baseball!
During the summer I love to go to the beach in the Outer Banks, North Carolina. Running is my passion and I was a coach with Girls on The Run last year. When I have free time I enjoy reading, baking and scrapbooking too.
I believe that attitude is one of the most important aspects of student success. As a result of my teaching style, every student has an excellent opportunity to be successful.
Mrs. Reilly - (Learning Support)
Hello 6-Red! My name is Mrs. Reilly! Life has been very exciting for me recently! I got married in May of 2012, we had a baby boy in March of 2013, and also had a baby girl in October of 2014! Life as a mommy of two has been great so far and I can't wait to share stories and pictures of my children with all of you!
I went to Kutztown University and majored in Elementary Education and Special Education. I later got my Master's in Education at Cabrini College. I have been teaching in the Hatboro-Horsham School District for over 12 years and have been teaching 6th grade at KV for over 10 years! I look forward to meeting you in September!
Mrs. Hartman - (Social Studies)
Mr. Vanderpool - (Science)
Are you ready for 6th grade Science? I'm looking forward to another great year! A little about myself...I am married to a nurse and have two boys of my own, one of which is also in 6th grade! I coach the track team and enjoy being outside.
