About Mrs. Hillanbrand


      Hello!  My name is Michele Hillanbrand and I have been employed by Catasauqua Area School District for 21 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 19 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 husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary this summer.  My son Connor is 18 years old.   He graduated from Parkland High School this year and will be continuing his education at LCTI.  Connor enjoys working, hanging out with friends, driving, and playing video games. My daughter Ashlyn is 15 years old and is now a sophmore at Parkland High School.  She enjoys playing softball both in high school and also on her tournament team Saucon Valley Storm 18u Elite.  When she is not busy with softball, she enjoys spending time with her friends.  As for me, I enjoy working in my garden, watching my daughter play softball, shopping,  but most of all I enjoy spending quality time with my family.
