• Meet Mrs. Motter:

    Hello!  I am a Harrisburg native and lived part of my life in Dauphin and Cumberland Counties.  I taught in a few different districts in and around those areas until we moved to State College in 1998.  We have two sons, Dan (SCAHS '07) and Jeff (SCAHS '09).

     My email is gmm12@scasd.org

    Do we have any connections?  I am a graduate of:

                         Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg, 1979    

                         Millersville State College (for those of you who remember way back when it was a college,

                         not a university!)  B.S. Ed., English, 1983                                                                                                                                        

                         Shippensburg University  M.Ed. English, 1994

    In addition, I was twice a fellow at the National Writing Project's (for teachers) Capital Area Writing Project at Penn State-Harrisburg.

    Further, I take graduate-level courses at University Park, where I earned the equivalent of a second Master's Degree and for nineteen years have been committed to its Professional Development School, the program which places year-long Penn State student interns in SCASD classrooms for a collaborative teaching experience.

    For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a teacher.

    Outside of the classroom, I enjoy reading (of course), running, being outside as much as possible, spending precious time with my husband, visiting my two sons (both live out of state), and taking care of  our two-year old farm rescue cat, Tilly, who is so sweet and adored her "brother" Harleigh, our yellow lab Harleigh, who sadly just this past New Year's Day passed away.  He was so loveable and fun, so loaded with personality,
