About Mrs. Hillanbrand


      Hello!  My name is Michele Hillanbrand and I have been employed by Catasauqua Area School District for 20 years.  I graduated from Millersville University with a dual degree in Elementary and Special Education.  I also attended Lehigh University and received my master's degree in Special Education.  I began my teaching career right here at Sheckler Elementary School, where  I have taught second grade for 18 years.  I have also served as a learning support teacher for two years.  I am very excited to begin this new school year.  I am eager to meet all of my students.  I can't wait to begin our exciting journey together.


     When I am not at school, I love to spend time doing things with my family. I live in Allentown, PA with my husband Larry, and my two wonderful children. My son Connor is 17 years old and is a senior at Parkland High School.  Connor enjoys running, hanging out with friends, driving, and playing video games. My daughter Ashlyn is 14 years old and is now a freshman at Parkland High School.  She enjoys playing softball on 2 teams and spending time with her friends. As for me, I love to watch my children participate in their various sports. I also like to read and spend time in my garden, but most of all I love to SHOP. As a family we love to go driving golf balls, we like playing games, going to the beach on vacation and we also enjoy relaxing family movie nights.
