Welcome to First Grade!
My name is Richelle Ettline and I will be your child's teacher this year. I grew up in Lancaster County and moved to the York area when I married my husband Chadd. We have a son named Cohlston and a daughter named Berkley and a dog named Mohlson. We enjoy doing many things as a family. Look for us at the Penn State Nittany Lions games, Ski Roundtop or swimming at the pool!
I received my B.S. in Elementary Education in 2002 and my Master's Degree in 2007 from Penn State University.
This year will be my 15th year teaching first grade in the West Shore School District.
My teaching philosophy is that I believe all children deserve respect. I believe children should not be humiliated, hurt or embarrassed. I believe a child’s self-esteem should be nurtured tenderly. My job is to teach until a child learns. I want your child to enjoy the learning process and I want to help them develop their own motivation for learning. I hope to do my best to encourage your children to succeed in their attempts to learn.
