The East Penn School District would like to introduce you to a few new faces you will see around our district this school year. We are certain that you will agree that they are a perfect fit. You make us #EastPennPROUD!
Hello! My name is Jameson Lausch, and I am overjoyed to become a part of the East Penn School District! As a product of East Penn, member of the community, and parent of children within the district, I am very proud to now work for this outstanding district, which has always been near and dear to my heart. I am a Kindergarten teacher at Wescosville Elementary, and although it is my first year teaching in East Penn, it is my 14th year in the classroom. After graduating from Moravian College in 2004, I began my career in the Bethlehem Area School District at Farmersville Elementary and spent 14 wonderful years there in grades 1, 4, and full-day Kindergarten. During my first few years in Bethlehem, I went back to school and earned my Master’s in Reading and Reading Specialist Certificate from Kutztown University.
My husband and I reside in Macungie with our 2 adopted fur babies and our 3 beautiful girls! They are the apples of our eye and keep us very busy with all of their activities, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. Supporting and encouraging them to always try their best in everything they do and “reach for the stars” is a motto by which I live.
I have many interests that are quite diverse. As a former Parkette gymnast, dancer, cheerleader, and soccer and softball player, exercise is a very important part of my life. In addition to working out, I enjoy painting, going for walks with my dogs, dining out and with my husband, Devin, shopping with my mom, and making arts and crafts with our girls.
I look forward to many years in the East Penn School and am so proud to now work in the place which has always been my home.
I earned a Master of Education degree in secondary education at Kutztown University, graduating in December 2017. Through that program, I had the opportunity to student teach in both a Physics classroom and a Mathematics classroom at Dieruff High School in the Allentown School District. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics and Mathematics, also at Kutztown University. During my studies there, I participated in physics research and co-authored a paper published in “Physical Review A.” I accepted my first teaching position at Emmaus High School, my alma mater. I currently teach Physics and Global Science Inquiry.
I am especially excited to be teaching band at LMMS this year because I am a former LMMS student! I graduated from Emmaus High School in 2011 and then went to Penn State to study music education. After I graduated from Penn State, I spent three years teaching elementary band in the Methacton School District. When I am not teaching, I enjoy cooking, baking, running, listening to music, playing instruments, and spending time with my friends and family.
