Meet Mrs. Pehanich

My name is Cara Pehanich.  I have been with the Mechanicsburg Area School District for 14 years.    This is my 6th year as a reading specialist at Shepherdstown.  Prior to that, I taught Elementary Gifted Support, 1st grade, and 2nd grade.
My family includes my husband Nick, sons Ryan and Ben, and our golden retriever Keeba.  We moved into the district so that our oldest could start school in MASD and he’s now a 1st grader at Shep!  We couldn’t be more excited to be a Wildcat family! J
I believe that learning to read is one of the most magical experiences that should be enjoyed by every student.  As an avid reader myself, I love sharing not only the “how” of reading, but also the “why”.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you ever have questions or concerns. I look forward to working with your kids throughout this year!
