Jeff Pammer/Classification Talk

Jeff Pammer, Indian Valley Middle School Principal, gave his Classification Talk this morning and explained how a Kutztown football player ended up becoming an educator. On the first day of his first job out of college, he received a phone call from his old football coach telling him about a job opening in Florida that the coach had recommended him for. The coach insisted that he contact them and while on his honeymoon in Disney World, Jeff set up an interview with Mainland Senior High School in Daytona Beach where he ended up teaching history and coaching. This was a career that he had not seriously entertained but he loved it. After two years his wife got home sick so they returned to the Lehigh Valley. He accepted a position in a very challenging school in the Poconos. Later they moved to Souderton where he accepted the position of Assistant Principal at West Broad Street after receiving a call from Sam Varano. Interestingly, both men have become Rotarians since then. He continued his education by getting his Masters and PH.D. in Education while working full time. 
Harleysville Rotarian Pat White sponsored Jeff into Rotary. We look forward to working with Jeff and his dynamic personality as we continue to serve our community and the world.
