• Dear LDMS families, students and community;

    self portrait

    I am honored to be the Assistant Principal at the Lower Dauphin Middle School. During my time working in Lower Dauphin I have truly become a Falcon at heart and enjoy being a member of the LD School District.  My teaching career has mainly been focused in special education with emotional support, autistic support and alternative education students.    I have worked at all levels from elementary through high school and have been a part of numerous committees and organizations along with taking on numerous leadership roles through those years.   

    The middle school years are some of the most crucial growing times for a young student, and I also believe that educating our students is a team effort.   For these reasons I am excited to work with the administrative team, teachers, families, community and students to help them grow not only academically but socially and emotionally as well. 

    I look forward to being visible around the building to support the staff and students and work together to best provide an effective education while creating a culture of care and understanding that allows all students and staff to grow and succeed. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or need any support, as I truly believe that to best meet the needs of our students it will take a team effort including family, friends and community members working together.


     With Much Appreciation,


     Johnathon R. Breininger

    Assistant Principal
