Mrs. April Shaffer
I was born and raised in York County, Pennsylvania. Because of my father's occupation and the need to transfer, we moved around a lot; mostly still in York County. We did live in Salem, Virginia for two years but then moved back to York. After graduating from Dallastown Area School District in 2002, I pursued a Music Education degree at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I graduated cum laude in December of 2006. Upon returning to York, I met my soon to be husband and moved to Dalmatia, Pennsylvania. I was able to attain a long term substitute teaching position for middle school music here at Millersburg and soon after became a learning support teacher under an emergency certification. I then attended an online program through Saint Joseph's University out of Philadelphia for Special Education. I graduated from SJU summa cum laude in December of 2010. After 8 years of teaching learning support in both the middle and high school, I now will be teaching 6-12 Life Skills. I have one spoiled beagle whos name is Milo. My husband and I recently had our first child in February of 2015. Having a 1 year old keeps us busy!
