About Mr. Wharton
Hello! My name is Mike Wharton. This will be my sixteenth year of teaching, however it will be my first year teaching at MASD. For the past 14 years I taught Health and Physical education at the middle school level for the Harrisburg School District. Before teaching in Harrisburg, I taught one year of elementary Health and Physical Education for the Shenandoah Valley School District. I am very excited to bring my love for teaching Health and Physical Education to MASD!
I am a 2006 Graduate from Lock Haven University where I received my Bachelor's degree in Health and Physical Education. I went on to receive my Master's in Education from Wilkes University in 2012.
I am originally from outside of New Orleans, Louisiana, but I now live here in Mechanicsburg with my wife Kelly (3rd grade teacher at Upper Allen), 10-year-old daughter Emma, 8-year-old daughter Taylor, and our 2-year-old dog Maggie. In my spare time, I love doing all things outdoors, especially bass fishing, hunting, and spending time at our family cabin. I also love watching all Pittsburgh sports teams as well as LSU (Geaux Tigers)!
