Mrs. Mintzer is from West Lawn, PA. She attended Wilson High School and Millersville University where she earned a BSE in Spanish. She has a Master’s Equivalency Certificate and has taught at Penn Manor since 1994.
Mrs. Mintzer chose to be a teacher because she has always loved school and always wanted to be a teacher. “When I was in elementary school, I used to stop into my grandfather’s Chemistry class on my way home from school. He taught at Wilson HS, and classroom was right by the end of a hallway, and I walked by it everyday!” After she had the opportunity to travel to Spain in high school, she decided that being a Spanish teacher was the right choice for her. In 1992 she traveled again to Spain for a semester abroad in Valencia.
Mrs. Mintzer’s favorite things about teaching: “I like that teaching Spanish allows me to teach about lots of topics, as well as skills: reading short stories in Spanish, modern Art (Salvador Dalí and Pablo Picasso are my favorites), and even grammar!”
Mrs. Mintzer also enjoys theatre: she is the Assistant Director for Fall Play & Spring Musical at PMHS; she has season tickets for the Fulton Opera House; and she is a member of Theater Hub (www.theaterhub.org) linking HS theatre programs from all around the Central PA area. She is also a Conestoga Swim Team board member.
Mrs. Mintzer’s family: Husband, three sons, and a beagle!
