My name is Christie Brandt and I am the Intensive Learning Support teacher at Elmwood Academy. This is my sixteenth year of teaching and my ninth year with the Mechanicsburg Area School District. I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary and Special Education from Gannon University in Erie, PA.  I decided to further purse my education by earning my Master's degree in Special Education from Edinboro University in Edinboro, PA. I grew up in Dillsburg and am a graduate of Northern High School. I live in Dillsburg with my husband, four daughters, a dog, and our pot-bellied pig named Porkchop.
