•   Welcome to Lawnton Elementary, Home of the Golden Eagles
    Dear Lawnton Families and Community Members,
    My name is Michelle Bangert.  The 2023-2024 school year is my thirtieth year in education. I started my career as a long-term substitute at Lawnton Elementary before being hired to teach at Middle Paxton Elementary. I have worked for CDSD for 27 years. I was raised in this area, graduated from Central Dauphin East High School and am dedicated to this community. I have taught kindergarten, first and second grade and served as a Data & Instruction Specialist for CDSD.   Before coming to Lawnton, I served as the Principal at Halifax Elementary for 3 years.
    My undergraduate work was completed at Lock Haven University, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Early
    Childhood Education.  I obtained my Master's of Science in Educational Leadership from Temple University.  I completed my Doctorate of Education in Curriculum & Instruction from Liberty University this summer.
    My husband and I met in high school at CD East.  He was a long-time coach in the district, coaching baseball for over 25 years for CD East High. He also served as a football coach at both East and CD High Schools. My daughter, Layke, is in 8th grade and enjoys participating in basketball, softball and track.

    I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, hiking, boating, and playing with our German Shepherd, Liebe.
    Education has been and will continue to be an important part of our family life.  I look forward to educating your children and working with the parents and community as we prepare our students for a successful future.
    Feel free to contact me with questions or concerns. 
    Dr. Michelle Bangert
