Dr. Christopher Jahnke
Welcome. I come to North Brandywine Middle school with 28 years of educational experience. I began my career as a teacher at the Foundational School of Montgomery County where I taught Social Studies to special education students for five years. I then moved to Pennsylvania where I taught 7th and 8th grade social studies at Ephrata Middle School for ten years. I began my administrative career when an opportunity to become an assistant principal at Ephrata Middle School arose. After three successful years in that position, I wanted to experience life in an elementary school, and fortunately, I was hired as the principal at Mountville Elementary School in the Hempfield School District. While I greatly enjoyed that position , I knew that the middle school level was my calling. Therefore I accepted the position of 7th grade principal at Radnor Middle School. I held that position for a year, when the principal vacancy at North Brandywine Middle School became available. The opportunity to work here in Coatesville was one that I did not want to miss, and I am happily beginning my fourth year as the principal at North Brandywine.
Educationally, I received my Bachelors Degree from Dickinson College with majors in Education and Political Science. I earned my Masters of Education (Curriculum and Instruction) and my Principal Certification from The Pennsylvania State University. I completed my Doctorate of Education from Immaculata University in the summer of 2015.
