• 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).


    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.

    I take graduate-level courses at University Park and for sixteen 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 yellow lab Harleigh, who is eight years old, quite fun and loaded with personality, and our two-year old farm rescue cat, Tilly, who is so sweet and adores her "brother" Harleigh.
