About Mrs. Mohr
This is my 18th year of teaching. It is my fifth year at Pottstown High School. My previous 13 years I was employed at Carlisle High School (about two hours from here). At Carlisle, I taught Applied Chemistry for all 13 years. I also taught a course called Chemistry 1 for the first few years of my teaching career. I was the junior class council adviser for 10 years. Which means, I planned prom for 10 years. I was involved with the musical (4 years) and mini-Thon (1 year) the last few years at Carlisle. For musical, I was in charge of set design, construction and back stage crew. Mini-Thon is a 12 hour dance-a-thon that raises money for the Four Diamonds through Penn State Hersey Medical.
My Involvement at Pottstown
I am the National Honors Advisor, this will be my third year advising.
This will be the third year as the head of musical set construction
I graduated from Cedar Cliff High School. After high school, I attended Shippensburg University (Go Red Raiders!) and earned a degree in chemistry education. I have a teaching certificate in Chemistry, Physics and General Science. I also have a Masters in Education Leadership from Shippensburg University.
My Family and Interests
I enjoy being with my family. I love spending time with my husband (of 8 years) and various kids (step kids, nephews, nieces, God-kids) in my life. I love photography and tie dye. This summer I have been working on my tie dying techniques and photography. My favorite tie dye and butterfly picture are on the right hand side.
I am passionate about helping young people live up to their potential and following their dreams. I love teaching and feel I was called to do this. I hope to impact my students' lives in a positive manor, to make them better human beings. I love life and try to find joy in everything I do. My favorite teaching moment is seeing a student understand a concept that they have been struggling with and seeing young people choose to do good.
In ten years, students may not remember what you taught them, but they will remember how you treated them.
