Meet the Teacher


    Welcome to room 4. My name is Mrs. Averill and I will be your child’s first grade teacher. As we all know, first grade is a very important year in your child’s life. I want each child in my classroom to have a fulfilling and positive academic experience. The atmosphere in my classroom celebrates learning and encourages each child to work to his/her fullest potential. 
     This will be my 11th year teaching first grade in Hershey. I truly love my job and am happy to be part of the first-grade teaching team. 

    I grew up in the Harrisburg area, and graduated from Central Dauphin High School. I attended Harrisburg Area Community College, and Pennsylvania State University where I received my degree in Elementary Education.  I have a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Assessment.


    I have two children, Ricky (20 years) and Karli (17 years).
    My husband, Rick and I, enjoy spending time with our family, cheering at swim meets and summer beach vacations.                    Ricky and KarliKarli Ricky and Karli Ricky
