Degrees and Certifications:

Dr. Katharina Fachin Lucas

As an undergraduate at Penn State, I studied Political Science and German Literature.  Then I earned a Master's degree in Elementary Education at the University of Pennsylvania.  As a student teacher, I spent a year at Samuel Powel Elementary in West Philadelphia.  Then I taught second grade in New Jersey for two years.  I spent four years working for the University of New Hampshire and earning a doctorate in education, focusing on Curriculum and Instruction.  I helped coordinate and studied a mentoring program for sixth grade girls for my doctoral research.  Walk with Me:  Mentoring Girls is a book I wrote based on that research.  I taught fifth grade in Worcester, Massachusetts.  Then I chaired a Teacher Education Program at Nichols College in Dudley, Massachusetts for four years.  Now I am back to where I grew up, Pennsylvania.  I have worked at Immanuel German Language School in Philadelphia for six years.  I taught German 1 in Pottsgrove Middle and High School for one year.  Today I love being at the Marsh Creek Sixth Grade Center and seeing my own three sons in the Downingtown School District.
