Mrs. Jennifer Force
Mrs. Stacy Rahn
Hello, my name is Stacy Rahn and I am excited to be joining the Everitt community this year in 5th grade. I have worked in the Neshaminy School District for the past 3 years teaching 5th grade, 4th grade, and 2nd grade learning support. I have truly enjoyed, and learned so much from each experience. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family. I love going to bookstores and discovering new books. I also delight in going to new restaurants and trying different foods. I am an avid sports fan and continue to be hopelessly devoted to our hometown teams. I look forward to a great year here at Everitt!
Hello, my name is Jen Force, and I am very excited to begin my first year here as the general music & chorus teacher at Everitt Elementary on Days 1, 2 & 3. I can also be found teaching general music at Walter Miller Elementary on Days 4 & 5. I am coming from the Philadelphia School District, where I taught music for three years in a neighborhood K-8 elementary school in the southwest area. I graduated from West Chester University four years ago, and I am currently getting my master’s degree in Elementary Literacy from Walden University. When I’m not teaching, I love playing piano, watching the Flyers win all of their hockey games, reading mysteries and swimming. I am very excited to be part of the Neshaminy community, and I can’t wait to see what these talented children produce!

Hello, my name is Andrea Buiocchi and I’m very excited to be joining the Everitt team on day 5 as your librarian. The rest of the week, I can be found at the Lower Southampton Elementary Library. In my free time I enjoy reading, working on jigsaw puzzles, gardening, collecting sea glass at the beach, and spending time with my daughter, Amanda, my son, Tyler, and my cat, Tuesday.
Hello, my name is Helen Kirsch. I am excited to be back teaching strings and directing the orchestra at Everitt! I also teach at Oliver Heckman and Albert Schweitzer Elementary Schools. I like to share my love of music with my students. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my family and reading.
Hello! My name is Mrs. Theresa Rubin and this is my first year at Samuel Everitt Elementary. I am teaching 2nd grade in room 4B. I have been teaching in Neshaminy since 2006. I became a teacher after spending 15 years as a police officer. Teaching is something I have dreamed of doing since I was a child. I graduated from Neshaminy High School in 1975, earned my Bachelor’s degree from Penn State University, and my Master’s degree from Holy Family University. My husband and I live in the Somerton section of Philadelphia. We have four rescued dogs that keep our house hopping. My favorite things to do are reading, visiting and collecting lighthouses, listening to music, dancing, and spending time with my family. I am looking forward to a great year with my enthusiastic second grade class.
October’s “Takes Pride” theme is “acceptance.” “Acceptance” is a
favorable reception or approval. When you demonstrate “acceptance” of
others, you acknowledge them even if you do not agree or have different
beliefs. Individuals who are accepting of others take the time to listen and
respect the point of view of others. This month, take the time to practice
“acceptance.” Be accepting of those with whom you disagree and try to
understand and see the world from their point of view. You can always
agree to disagree in a peaceful manner.
Grade Level Reading Counts!
It was wonderful to speak with so many parents at the literacy table
during Back to School Night. Many parents were inquiring about the
grade level reading requirements and titles. Neshaminy School
District does have grade level reading lists from which your child
should be reading from and read to this year.
The Neshaminy School District's Recommended Reading Lists are
located in the Destiny Follett program. Our
