Mrs. Sonia Buckley
I have been committed to Upper Adams School District since my student teaching experience at Biglerville Elementary School in 1991. I began the first few years of my career teaching kindergarten, second grade, and the gifted program at Biglerville. I was fortunate to spend 19 years teaching 5th grade and then moved into a Literacy Coach/IST position at Arendtsville. I have served on many curriculum committees throughout the years and was given the opportunity to serve as the district curriculum coordinator for kindergarten through twelfth grade during the 2012-13 school year. I highly enjoyed all of these experiences and look forward to this next step in my educational career.
One of the most important aspects of my job is to develop positive relationships with students, parents and teachers while ensuring a highest quality of education possible. I have always had an open-door policy and will continue with that philosophy as Principal. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns, suggestions, or ideas you may have to make this a successful year.
