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 12th 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 (21 years) and Karli (18 years).
    My husband, Rick and I, enjoy spending time with our family, cheering at swim meets and summer beach vacations.
