• ABOUT MRS. EDWARDS

School Counselor
  • Mrs. Edwards     

         My name is Robin Edwards, and I live in Etters, which is approximately 25 minutes from Tri-C.  I am originally from the Pittsburgh area and grew up in the town of Mars, PA.  My family and I are huge Steeler/Penguin/Pirate fans.  I am married and have three children – a 30 year old daughter who is married and is a Research Project Manager at Penn State College of Medicine, a 22 year old son who is a senior at West Virginia University, and a 20 year old daughter who is a junior at the University of Massachusetts.  I attended Clarion University for my B.S. in Elementary Education.  I was a classroom elementary teacher for 23 years.  I taught 18 years at Steelton-Highspire Elementary, 3 years at St. Catherine Laboure School in Harrisburg, and 2 years at Thomas Holtzman Elementary in the Susquehanna Twp. School District.  In 2014, I received my M.A. degree in School Counseling from Messiah College, and had the opportunity to complete two long-term sub school counseling positions – one at Eastern York S.D. and one at Cumberland Valley S.D.  I most recently taught 3rd grade at Thomas Holtzman Elementary and was also a full-time school counselor there for one year.  I started at Tri-Community in January 2018 as the school counselor.  Teaching children has been a truly gratifying career.  The intrinsic benefits have been plentiful.  I love being the school counselor at Tri-Community.

         When not working with students.  I enjoy going to museums and visiting new places with my family.  I also like to cook, bake and entertain friends.  I enjoy reading and doing “crafty” activities and I am truly a Pinterest junky.
