Welcome! Mrs. Mahan has been working in the Red Lion Area School District for seven years and will be entering her eighth year. She began teaching at the Sr. High, teaching College Prep English for 10th and 11th grade. She then taught 9th grade College Prep and even Academic Literacy at the Jr. High. Since then, she has taught 7th and 8th grade English; she has enjoyed the various classes and truly looks forward to 8th grade again this year. 8th graders are fantastic! Mrs. Mahan has her teaching degree from Messiah College and Wilson College, and is currently enrolled at Penn State World Campus for her Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction--Children's Literature.
Mrs. Mahan is married and has a son, Trace, who just started 1st grade this year and already loves school. At home, they have two turtles named Frank and Earnest. Some of her favorite things to do are to read and to write, and she hopes to encourage you in these pursuits, as well. Together, you, your classmates, and your teacher are going have have a wonderful year.
