Meet Mrs. Darlak
     My family
    I am so excited to be teaching at GVMS for the 2021-2022 school year!  I am looking forward to working together, learning together, supporting one another, and having fun! Here is a little information about myself!
    • I grew up on Long Island, but have lived in this area since 1992.
    • This summer, my husband Darryl and I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary.
    • We have three beautiful children: Daniel, Julia, and Andrew.
    • Even though I am a New York transplant, my husband has successfully converted me to all Philly sports teams!
    • I have a BA from St. Joseph's College, NY, in Elementary and Special Education.
    • I have an M.Ed. from West Chester University in Elementary School Counseling.
    • I hold Middle School Certifications in Language Arts, Math, and Social Studies.
    • I have 17 years of teaching experience.
    • Prior to teaching at GVMS, I taught in the UK, for the CCIU, and was a Learning Support teacher at the old KDM.
    • I love to spend time with my family, travel, and stay active!
    • I want to help my students succeed and grow to their fullest potential, and to become as independent as possible.
