Her room in the business education wing is no stranger to Red Lion students, anyone could recognize the neon letters above the doorway to her classroom, announcing her presence in the hall. And after 25 years of teaching at Red Lion, Mrs. Lori Krouse will be retiring at the end of this school year.
She says she used to “play teacher” with peers as a child, but never imagined she would actually be one. A Shippensburg Graduate, Krouse studied undeclared until her business professor pulled her aside after class and told her that with her communication skills and personality, she should consider being a teacher.

In past Fourth Grade Environmental Days, one would be able to find high school and elementary school students working together at a Felton area farm, learning about the world around them. One group would be sitting in an area learning about reptiles, while another group would be staring at a teacher in wonderment as she presents some amazing creature.
This year, the event, put on by senior high students with the help of teachers, was held inside due to weather. But in no way did that get in the way of the students who were determined to educate our much smaller friends.

Dr. Kevin Fleming, author of “(Re)defining the Goal: The True Path to Career Readiness in the 21st Century” has received national attention for his labor market research and advocacy of technical education. His passion for the subject stems from his experience with crippling college debt and the struggle faced by many graduates to find a job in their field.
