Debbie Tyson


My name is Mrs. Debbie Tyson and I am the Kindergarten teacher here at The Jenkins School. I graduated from Millersville University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I am currently working on my English Language Secondary Certification. I have been a long-term substitute teacher for School District of Lancaster for the past three years where I taught in Kindergarten, First, Second, and Fourth grades. I taught Second and Fourth grade in York. I also worked at Manheim Township School District for ten years as a classroom aide. 

My husband and I live in Lancaster County. I have two grown sons who are married and I have three grandchildren. Some things that I enjoy are camping with family, singing, readying books, sewing and working in my vegetable and flower gardens.

My name is Stacy Rogers. I am so excited to be the Pre-K Teacher at The Jenkins School. I am a graduate of Bloomsburg University where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education. I also hold a Master’s Degree in Reading. I have been working with children for the past 20 years and look forward to this new experience.


My husband and I live in West Hempfield with our 3 children, Maggie, Elise, & Aaron... and our dogs, Charlie and Scout. In my spare time I love to read, spend time with family and friends, and work on my children’s book that I am currently writing. I am thrilled to start this new journey and am very excited for a fun school year ahead!


Heather Kroeck


Hi everyone!  I am the Preschool teacher at The Jenkins School. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Bloomsburg University in 1995, and I have been working with children in a classroom setting for over 20 years. I have been at The Jenkins School since 2016 and worked as an aide in the Preschool room, was an After School Care teacher, and a Summer Camp teacher.

I was born and raised in Lititz PA, where I still live with my husband Jeremy, and our 2
sons, Jordan and Derek.

In my free time I enjoy taking bicycle rides with my husband. We enjoy doing little day trips and exploring new bike trails around PA and nearby states. I also love to spend time with my niece, Naya and my 3 nephews Ka, Trey and Soren. I am looking forward to this school year. It will be an educational, rewarding, and most importantly FUN, year!

Pre-Kindergarten, Art and Music

I am the Art and Music teacher at Jenkins. I am a graduate of Millersville University with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education, and I have been teaching for over 12 years. I started teaching music at Jenkins in 2010, and excitedly began teaching art in 2011. I love encouraging my students to explore self-expression through creativity and hands-on learning. During the school year I look forward to MusicFest, our all school music performance and Evening of the Arts, where we display over twenty amazing art pieces from each student.


My three children are former, current and future students of Jenkins and love helping Mom try new activities for the classroom. I also love to read, travel with my family and play and teach stringed instruments.
