About Mrs. SprecherI joined the Annville-Cleona School District in the 2014-2015 school year as the Social Worker for the district. Prior to this, I worked at the Lebanon VA Medical Center as a social worker in the homeless program. During this endeavor, I helped homeless Veterans and their families obtain permanent housing or programming and assisted Veterans with obtaining health care. My passion for working with children and families began with an internship running groups for at-risk youth at Case Management Unit in Harrisburg, PA. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in sociology and criminal justice from St. Francis University in Loretto, PA and my Masters in Social Work from Temple University. I am licensed through the state of Pennsylvania to practice social work and continue to expand my knowledge in the field through continuing education. I enjoy photography, exercise and traveling.
