Bach, Penn and Fitz

Who else do you know who – on the spot – can connect J.S. Bach and Wm. Penn? 

Yo, Fitz!

Remember those good times in Room 109? Penn Charter singers are still making beautiful music together, most often with Joe Fitzmartin at the keyboard. Only the location has changed, to the Roberts Choral Room.

PC Faculty: Lifelong Learners

 

Judith Hill, our director of libraries, just began her sabbatical to visit libraries in New England and at Oxford! Sabbaticals are just one of many professional development opportunities for faculty at Penn Charter to learn new techniques, meet with peers, experience different schools and grow professionally.

It's a Great Day to Be a Quaker because our faculty strive to become even better teachers for our incredible students! 

The faculty is grateful to every single OPC, parent, friend, fellow faculty member and institution who supports faculty professional development at Penn Charter. We are better because of your encouragement and your support. Thank you!
