Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Knisely

 Welcome to 5th grade!


My name is Mrs. Knisely and I am so excited to watch your children learn and grow this year. Prior to teaching, I worked in the business world for ten years as a Corporate Trainer. In 2009, I decided to pursue my passion in teaching, and, left the business world.  After receiving my degree in Elementary Education at West Chester University, I was a substitute teacher.  Most recently I  worked at Highland Park Elementary as a Reading Interventionist. I am happy to be teaching full time at the school that I love!


We are going to explore many different units throughout fifth grade. In ELA, we will focus on different reading strategies to enhance our comprehension skills.  We will learn new spelling patterns and vobaulary words with each unit.  Science and Social Studies will have many units that will include fun and engaging activities.
