Denise Saylor, Principal

I have worked in the Whitehall-Coplay School District for the past 22 years as a classroom teacher, elementary school counselor, and now as the principal of Gockley Elementary.  As a graduate of Whitehall High School, I am extremely honored and proud to be a part of the Gockley staff, this school district, and our community.

Prior to my employment at Whitehall, I was a kindergarten teacher in the Bethlehem Area School District.  My educational background includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and Administrative Certification from Penn State University.  I have also attained my Master’s Degree in Elementary Counseling from Kutztown University.

As we move into the upcoming school year, I am excited to be working with our Gockley students and families.  I believe that communication between school and home is an integral part of the education of students at the K-1 level.  Please do not hesitate to contact me during the year with questions or concerns regarding your child’s education.

As your child’s principal, I am excited for the rewards and challenges this school year will bring.  Most importantly, I will work diligently along with your child’s teachers to ensure a positive learning experience for all the students of Gockley Elementary.
