Hello! My name is Devon Strimel and I am thrilled to enter my 2nd year here at South Park High School as a Business Teacher. I look forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting new ones!
As a young, passionate individual you will find my love for children and the yearning to make a difference in young lives has led me to pursue a profession in education. I am a 2012 graduate of Robert Morris University and hold a BA in Accounting and MA in Business Education. I had the privilege to be a long-term substitute at both South Fayette High School and Bethel Park High School prior to joining the South Park team. For the 2016-2017 school year I will be teaching Computer Applications with Personal Finance, Advanced Computer Applications and Web Page Design. I am also the adviser of the FBLA Club. Visit My Philosophy of Education page to learn more about my values as a teacher.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I spend a lot of weekends in Erie visiting my brother, sister-in-law and niece. I take pleasure in the outdoors, gardening, sports, movies, arts and crafts, reading health and fitness articles, learning about holistic and alternative medicine, and living a healthy, active lifestyle. I am always challenging myself and setting new goals to better myself; whether that be intellectual or physical. I love to be active and can always be found playing like a big kid! I enjoy traveling and have a bucket list of places around the world I will see. I have had the opportunity to explore London, Mexico, Punta Cana, and camps at various KOA’s around the east coast. I will go to Australia to see kangaroos and Costa Rica to walk through their rainforests one day!
I look forward to another fun and productive school year! I hope to touch and make a difference in each and every one of my student's lives.
