Welcome to Avonworth Middle School. My name is Mike Hall.
I have served as the principal at Avonworth Middle School since 2012. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to work in such a great district with amazing students, parent, teachers, and community.
My first five years in education were devoted to teaching middle school students in Colonial Beach, Virginia. I then moved back to Pennsylvania and taught fourth grade for one year with Propel Charter Schools and three and a half years in the Canon-McMillan School District.
I entered administration when promoted to the role of Assistant Principal at Canon-McMillan High School. I worked in this capacity for two and half years prior to accepting this position as the Middle School Principal at the start of the 2012-2013 school year.
I earned my Master of Education and Administration certification from California University of Pennsylvania. I received my Bachelor of Arts from Marietta College and am a high school graduate of Lincoln High School in Ellwood City, PA.
My life outside of school is much like many families in our district. I understand the importance of school but also the importance of family. My wife and have four amazing children that certainly keep us busy.
My name is Kaitlin Remensky and since 2017, I have had the unique opportunity to serve as Assistant Principal at two great buildings in our school district. As a part of the team at both Avonworth Middle School and Avonworth High School, I love working with students, families and staff to provide the best education possible for our learners in grades 7-12.
After graduating from North Hills High School, I earned my BA in History and Social Studies 7-12 PA teaching certification from Westminster College. I went on to earn my MA in History from Slippery Rock University and then my Principal Certification from the University of Pittsburgh.
My career in education began as a teaching assistant in the North Hills School District. I then spent 13 years teaching Social Studies at Knoch High School in the South Butler County School District. In 2015, I accepted a position as the Assistant Principal in the South Butler County Elementary Schools before returning to Knoch High School as Assistant Principal for the 2016-2017 school year. I was then honored to become an administrator at Avonworth in 2017.
Outside of school, I spend a lot of time on the sidelines as a “soccer mom” cheering on my two children and my husband (who is usually coaching). Our busy schedules always have us moving, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
