    8th Grade American History

    Welcome to 8th Grade American History class.  My name is Mr. Derek Shaffer and I am looking forward to teaching you about our country's past.  This will be my 25th year teaching at Lower Dauphin. I spent my first year teaching 1st Grade at South Hanover Elementary.  Then, I moved to 5th Grade at South Hanover for three years before moving to the Middle School.  This will be my 21st year teaching 8th Grade American History.  I graduated from York College and hold my Masters Degree as well.  My wife teaches 2nd Grade at Nye Elementary.  I have a stepson, Brady, who graduated from DeSales University.  We also have three daughters. Alexa is a freshman at Michigan State playing field hockey there. Brynn is a senior here at LD and will attend Michigan State next year and play field hockey there as well. Finally, Kenzie is entering 8th grade here at LD.
