About the Teacher

Who Is This Mrs. McIntire Anyway?


Dear Parents,


I’d like to take a moment to tell you a little about myself.  I live in Chambersburg with my incredible husband, Scott and our two fantastic girls, Ellie and Maggie.  I am a graduate of Waynesboro Area Senior High School, Hagerstown Junior College, and Millersville University.  I earned my B.A. in Psychology in 1993.  Since 1995, I’ve been employed within the child care profession.  I began working with children at Noah’s Ark Child Care Center as a Teacher’s Aide.  It was then that I realized I wanted to teach. 


In 2000, I began substitute teaching and fulfilling my requirements for a PA Teaching Certificate.  I received my Certificate in April of 2001 from Wilson College.  After substituting for a few more months, I got a first grade position at Hooverville.  I taught first grade for 17 years and in 2018, I began teaching kindergarten.  I am thrilled to be a part of the Hooverville family. 


My hope, my mission as a teacher, is to instill a love of learning in my students.  I will do everything I can to them to believe in themselves and work to their potential.  I will help raise the self-esteem of my students and empower them to reach their own goals and make good choices.  I will treat my students with respect and nurture them to become self-disciplined and compassionate individuals. 


I struggled for a bit to decide what I want to be when I grow up, but I really feel a sense of being comfortable in my own skin since I’ve begun teaching.  I won’t tell you it’s not stressful, but it does feel right.  I want you to know that I am doing what I love and I am really enjoying your children.  I’m looking forward to a wonderful year.
