Welcome to 1st Grade! My name is Jen Kyper and I am very excited to be your child’s first grade teacher this year! This will be my 17th year teaching first grade in the Palmyra Area School District.I feel passionate about creating a welcoming and comfortable learning environment for all students. My goal is to help guide students to become lifelong readers, writers, and respectful citizens. Each student is an integral part of our classroom community, and I can’t wait to work with each one of them this year.
I graduated from Palmyra High School in 2000 and am still a proud Palmyra Cougar! I graduated from Juniata College in 2004 with certifications in both Elementary and Special Education. I then received my Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Penn State Harrisburg in 2009.
I grew up in Palmyra and currently live here with my husband Scott, our four amazing boys, and our two puppies. I knew I wanted to be a teacher ever since I was a little girl and I truly love my job! When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family, going to the beach, watching movies, and hanging out with friends.
