Mrs. Eve Packel

 

Mrs. Packel (formally Mrs. Policare), received her undergraduate degree in Deaf Education/Sign Language from the University of South Florida, in Tampa, Florida. She continued on to receive her Master’s Degree in Special Education from Penn State, Great Valley, and her Supervisory/Educational Specialist Certification from Lehigh University. Throughout the years she has been trained and certified in Multi-Sensory Reading Instruction (Orton-Gillingham), Linda-Mood Bell LIPS, and the SONDAY SYSTEM.

Eve’s early career experiences include teaching at various camps for Special Needs students, volunteering at the Deaf Service Center in Tampa, and teaching theater and dance to deaf students at the Aspen School for the Deaf in Colorado. Prior to CBSD, Eve worked at Katzenbach School for the Deaf in Trenton, NJ, taught Early Intervention birth to 5 years for Kencrest in Newtown Square, and was a Master Teacher at Lehigh University’s approved private school, the Centennial School for Emotionally Disturbed students (specializing in Autism/Life Skills programming).

Throughout the years, she has taught all grade levels of Elementary Learning Support, team taught through full inclusion groupings, and was Supervisor of Special Education during the 1998/99 school year.

 With Theater and Dance being of heavy focus since the age of five, Mrs. Packel has always loved melding her love of education and performance with students of all ages and abilities. She believes that students thrive when they feel good about their talents, self-worth, and freedom of self-expression. They need to be accepted for who they are and given the flexibility to shine in their own individual ways.
 
In her free time, Mrs. Packel loves going on adventures with her family; traveling, hiking, and exploring new places in the great outdoors. She loves cooking and baking healthy meals, excercising, playing tennis, earned her blackbelt in karate with her son, loves Learning Tai Chi, loves to volunteer, and riding bikes as a family.
