    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 23rd 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 19th 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 is a senior in college at DeSales University.  We also have three daughters here at Lower Dauphin: Alexa (Junior), Brynn (Sophomore), and Kenzie (6th Grade).  They are all very active in sports and my wife and I spend the majority of our time attending their events.
