Degrees and Certifications:
Teaching is Mrs. Gerhart’s passion, although it is actually her second career! During her first couple of years at East Stroudsburg University, she changed her major from Elementary Education to Hotel and Resort Management. Upon graduation, she began working her favorite job (before teaching) at at the Dupont Country Club as a party and event coordinator! She always knew that she was meant to teach so she went back to school and obtained her teaching certificate and earned a Masters degree in reading and literacy. She started as a substitute teacher at Lawton and she was on her way to fulfilling her dream! She has also taught at Pattengill Elementary and Eberwhite Elementary school.
“I am married and I have two children. My daughter Mackenzie and my son Tanner both went to Lawton! They are both now in college. We have a very sweet and spoiled golden retriever named Lexy. I love to read, travel, hike and spend time with my family.”
Mrs. Gerhart’s Educational Philosophy:
“My classroom goal is to create a positive and safe learning environment and to help every child reach their full potential as a life long learner. I feel very fortunate to be in a profession that I love and to be teaching at Lawton Elementary.
