Hello,I am Mr. Klink, I had been teaching 5th grade at Fairview Elementary School from 2009-2014. Last year, I came to Mowery Elementary to take the IST (Instructional Support Teacher) position. Before I was a teacher I worked in two retirement facilities in the maintenance and grounds departments. Those experiences helped me to develop a better appreciation and dedication to applying learning to our everyday lives. Learning does not stop in the classroom, it continues throughout our lives. I attended Hooverville Elementary, East Junior High School, and Waynesboro Area Senior High School within the Waynesboro School District.
My parents were both teachers and, on occasion, they volunteer throughout the school. You could say that education is "in my blood". I attended Penn State and Shippensburg Universities, as well as, Wilson College. I finished my Master's Degree from Wilkes University in the Spring of 2014 and I am currently attending Shippensburg University in the Principal Certification Program.
I live in Waynesboro with my wife Sarah, and our children Ethan and Alyson. We also have a dog named Sage. I enjoy many outdoor activities including fishing, hunting, and kayaking. You may occasionally see me hiking along the Appalachian Trail as well. If you see me throughout the community or along the trail, stop and say hello. I have learned that a smile and a good word go a long way!
