• Welcome!

    My name is Dr. Chortanoff.

    I serve a variety of students at Lower Dauphin High School. My roles include Gifted Support Teacher, HACC Dual Enrollment History Instructor, Social Studies Teacher, and an advisor for the History Honor Society. 

    Previously, I served as the Dean of Students at Lower Dauphin Middle School. Prior to serving in LDSD, I served in the Central Dauphin School District. I enjoy fitness, reading, traveling, coaching, and spending time with my family. 

    I earned a doctorate in Educational Leadership and Administration, M.Ed. in Educational Administration, MA in American Studies, MA in History, and BA in History. I earned state certifications in Social Studies, English, Gifted Education, and Administration.

    I am grateful to serve the students and families in the Lower Dauphin community. I welcome your input via email: schortanoff@ldsd.org or phone: 566.5330.
