After touring another school district, I realized I needed more plush in my room
  • Hallo! Mein Name ist Dennis Wilt (Herr Wilt for German class - I do not respond to Mr. Wilt). Although this is only my second year at Mount Nittany Middle, I also taught English at a university in Graz, Austria during the 2018-19 academic year. Surely, I have worked with students from all levels K-16, but I am particularly fond of working with middle school students as they start to understand themselves more fully and grow into their own skin (both physically and figuratively). 

    I am originally from Altoona, Pennsylvania, and graduated from Juniata College in Huntingdon, PA, in 2018. While there, I was able to study abroad in Germany and twice in Mexico; in fact, I have been to over 15 countries. Traveling and getting to know people from different cultures deeply - beyond cultural stereotypes - are my passions, second only to teaching students how fun and rewarding it is to understand, write, and speak in another language.

    In regards to the 6th grade schedule for this year, I misspoke:  After German, students will be going to French class with Madame Helmerich.
