Hi! My name is Mrs. Derstine and I am very excited to be part of the 3rd grade team at Newberry Elementary School this year! I am looking forward to sharing a lot of learning and fun with you!

I was born in Pennsylvania…lived in Japan, California, Nevada, and finally found my way back to PA. I went to Juniata College, taught English in Hiroshima, Japan, and then moved to San Francisco California. My husband and I travelled all around California and Nevada, visiting many state and national parks like Yosemite, Zion, and Red Rock Canyon. We have 3 little boys and love going to lakes and pools, the beach, and watching movies. The Star Wars movies are our current favorites.
