Ligonier Valley School District - Teacher Webpages

Welcome to Mrs.Stahl's web page on the SchoolWires portal! 
 
By way of introduction, I would like to tell you a little about myself.  I am a life-long resident of the Ligonier area and a graduate of LVHS.  While pursuing my undergraduate degree in English at Seton Hill College, I worked as a clerical aide at both the high school and at the middle school.  I left that position to complete my student teaching practicum at Greater Latrobe Junior High School. I graduated cum laude from Seton Hill and began my teaching career. 
 
I was hired as a junior high English teacher at West End Catholic School in Johnstown.  While there, I taught art, computer, English, reading, and library skills while attending graduate classes at Seton Hill.  In 2003, I received a Master's degree in Special Education from that university.  In the meantime, I was asked to assume a stronger leadership role at WECS when I was offered the job as principal.  I held that position for 2 years, from 2002 through July of 2004.
 
I not only advocate for life-long learning, I LIVE life-long learning!  I have completed a Master's in Reading program from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, and I belong to the International Reading Association. Membership in this organization allows me to stay up-to-date with current research about teaching reading. 
 
I am very pleased to have the opportunity to teach in the Ligonier Valley School District! There is a special honor--and sense of duty--attached to teaching in your home district.
 
If you need to reach me, email is the best way.  My school email address is dastahl@lvsd.k12.pa.us.
