Mrs. Karen Scharrer-Homepage
Hello! My name is Mrs. Karen Scharrer. I will be one of your teachers at Northley Middle School. I have been a special education teacher for thirteen years in Penn Delco. Last year was my fourth year as the Autistic Support Teacher at Northley. Prior to that, for five years, I co-taught with Ms. Flanagan in our Community Based Instruction Program. Collaboratively, we continue to plan and prepare our programs to best meet your needs.
I am 37 years old, am married and have two sons. I attended West Chester University and graduated in December 2002 with a degree in Special Education. I attended Neumann University for my master’s degree, Immaculata University for my Principalship, and West Chester University for my certificate in Autism.
During the summer, I also vacationed with my family in Ocean City, New Jersey and Long Island, New York. Some of my favorite things to do in my spare time are: traveling to New York, spending time at the beach, going to the New York Yankees games (we are huge fans!), visiting the zoo, the pool, the park, Linvilla Orchards, collecting sea glass, taking pictures, spending time with my family and friends, and refurbishing furniture I find at yard sales.
The thing I love the most is teaching and I will try to do my best to make sure this school year as the best it can be!
