Greetings! My name is Mrs. Gleason. It is my fifteenth year teaching at Charlestown Elementary in the Great Valley School District. I've worked as a fourth grade teacher for nine years. My experience also includes teaching fifth and third grades. I hold a number of certifications in the field of education. I completed my undergraduate work in Elementary Education at Millersville University. Shortly thereafter, I obtained a Master’s Degree of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Science from Penn State University. A few years later, I became certified in Middle School Math and Science content areas.

    Your child’s experience with me is very important. I aim to model and support a learning environment that encourages academic and social growth.  I think this can best be achieved by setting and revising goals to promote lifelong learning.  I have a solid educational foundation and will work tirelessly to achieve this goal. In addition, I will challenge your child to exercise his or her knowledge of the Pillars of Character. This includes all students being Responsible, Respectful, Caring, Fair, Trustworthy and a good Citizen. I strongly believe a child’s character, academic interest and achievements will positively influence the school, local, and global society. 

    In addition to teaching, I hold a special interest in traveling, fitness and motherhood.  I have traveled domestically and internationally.  I’ve participated in community events such as charity runs including training and participating in a full marathon. I have three wonderful children and am expecting my fourth child this fall! We love reading, singing, going for runs and playing outside.
