Mx. Chris Schwindinger

Welcome Fifth Grade Falcons! My name is Chris Schwindinger and this will be my third year here at Forest Grove Elementary and my fourth year teaching in Sterling Park. Prior to teaching here, I spent 10 years teaching in the Lancaster and Harrisburg area as an Environmental Educator and STEM educator. I grew up in Baltimore, MD and graduated from Millersville University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. 

In my free time I enjoy hiking and camping as well as crocheting and tatting (making lace). I am passionate about teaching science and look forward to all the fun, hands-on activities we have planned for this school year!
