The East Region of Pennsylvania Association of Middle Level Education includes the 29 counties in the eastern half of PA not counting the five county metro-Philadelphia area (PAMLE southeast region).  Our region includes approximately 200 school districts and over 10,000 teachers meeting the needs of 10-15 year olds in grades 5-8.  There are many ways you can get more involved in PAMLE and the East Region.

East Region News

On October 24, 2017, the East region presented a PDI on Professionalism to one hundred Kutztown University students.  Jesse White, Principal at Yellow Breeches Middle School, presented a session on classroom climate.  Dr. Carol Watson, Associate Professor of Elementary Education at Kutztown University, presented on Schools To Watch. The third session was a principal panel/mock interview, where students were given time in small groups to field mock interview questions from the following experienced middle level principals: Dan Hartman, South Western School District; Gangi Cucciuffo, Fleetwood Area Middle School; Joel Brigel, Northwest Middle School; Dr. Clare Reich, Donegal Intermediate School; and Karen Walker, Lebanon Valley College. A big thank you goes out to Kutztown University and Dr. Theresa Stahler for the opportunity to present.

On Wednesday, April 19th, 2017 a Principal's Breakfast was held at Kutztown University.  The principal's in attendance were given a presentation on the value and flexible use of the PA Middle Level 4-8 certification.  Anyone who might have more questions about this topic, please contact Carol Watson at
