My name is Mrs. Elizabeth (Libby) Echternach, and I am one of the fifth grade teachers at Brecknock Elementary. I hold a bachelor’s degree in elementary and early childhood education and a master’s degree in gifted education, from Millersville University. I began working with the Eastern Lancaster County School District in 1995, as a kindergarten teacher. In 1997, I moved to Caernarvon Elementary where I taught fourth grade for ten years. In 2007, after the closing of Caernarvon, I transferred into the gifted support position, working with elementary and middle school students throughout the district. After seven years, I requested to transfer back into the classroom. In 2014, I moved to Blue Ball Elementary, where I taught second and then sixth grade. Moving to Brecknock for the 2017-2018 school year, I currently teach fifth grade!
