Mr. Gregory Dherit » Bio


I am pleased to intoduce myself to you through this short biography.  2017 will be my twenty-sixth year teaching for the Red Lion Area School District.  This will be my twenty-fifth consecutive year in sixth grade.  I have been teaching here at Larry J Macaluso since our opening nine years ago.  I teach Reading, Science and Social Studies for our team.  Mrs. Bradshaw and I have been a team for the past seven years.
I completed my undergraduate degree at York College, my Master's Equivalence through various colleges and am currently taking a Masters program through Wilson College. I am a native of York County and have spent my entire career at Red Lion Area School District. 
I enjoy reading, playing/watching a variety of sports; as well as spending time outdoors.  My wife Kathie is the Executive Secretary to the Principal at Red Lion Area High School.  My daughter just graduated with her Art Education Degree from Shippensburg and my son is working on his Veterinary Technician degree.

       share.  These books will be kept at school due to the fact that they are new.
