Hello and welcome to 5th grade! We have so many fun and engaging activities and lessons planned this year, so I am very excited to get started! To give you a little background about myself, I was born and raised in Reading, Pennsylvania, where I was able to pursue my dream of teaching in an elementary school classroom. I graduated from Arcadia University with my BA in Elementary Education (PreK-5 General Education & PreK-8 Special Education). I was also a member of the Arcadia University baseball team.

    Being at teacher at Anthony Burns Elementary has been an incredible blessing in my life. As an educator, I truly believe that positivity and encouragement can work wonders for students by giving them confidence in themselves and their abilities. Utilizing growth mindset and community building is a priority in my classroom, and I plan on implementing those ideologies in my lessons each and every day. Communication is crucial, so if you have any questions at all, feel free to email me at eppensteinaj@staffordschools.net, or message me through Class Dojo.
