Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Lechniak

I grew up in South Williamsport, PA.  Hiking, basketball, soccer, track and field, and family events took up my time.  After graduating, I attended Misericordia University where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree  in Elementary Education.  In 2005, I was honored to accept a 3rd grade position at Bridge Valley Elementary.  During my years at Bridge Valley, I was able to complete, a Masters in Educational Strategies and Development from Wilkes University.  In 2010, I transfered to Gayman Elementary where I currently teach 6th grade.  Most recently, I have earned my Reading Specialist Certification from Cabrini College.  I am blessed to go home to a wonderful wife and two beautiful children.  In my current free time, which is few and far between, I enjoy reading, running, and completing various projects around the house.
