Mrs. Sandra Knight

Hello! I am currently teaching English Language Arts (8th grade), Social Studies (8th grade) and a Newspaper course called Skipper Sketches. My coursework is available via google classroom. I graduated from Grove City College in 2005 with a teaching degree. I taught in Philadelphia for ten years. I attended school online through Capella University and earned a Master's degree, specializing in non-profit business administration.  I also graduated from Drexel University in 2014 with a Master's degree in Library and Information Science. I am the 8th-grade advisor for the Power of the Pen Club. Please contact me if you have any questions- I am always happy to hear from parents or students!
