Posted on January 15, 2016, in Events


General McLane High School Physical Education and Health teacher Marla Stauffer served her last day in the District today, officially retiring after 35 years.

Stauffer has been with the District since 1981. During her time at General McLane, Stauffer implemented aerobics into the 11th grade Physical Education Class and after-school program, helped coordinate the former Prom Promise program and the Emergency Medical Technician program and coached Junior Varsity Volleyball and Basketball. A breast cancer survivor herself, Stauffer organized and hosted a “Make it Pink, Please” day to support Breast Cancer Awareness.

“Marla is a real role model for staying fit throughout life,” said Superintendent Richard Scaletta. “Her enthusiasm for lifetime fitness has been contagious to her students and she will be missed.”

The Edinboro State College graduate is originally from Emmaus, PA. During college, Stauffer played softball for four years and basketball for one.

The High School Students had send-off for her on her last day.

Congratulations to Marla on her retirement! She will be missed greatly!
