My name is Kerstin Dean and I am so thrilled to be joining the second grade team at Star Hill Elementary this school year! I grew up in Smyrna Delaware, and attended the Smyrna School District. Since I love Delaware so much I decided to stay local and attend college. I graduated from Wilmington University in December 2016 with my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. Some of my favorite things are The Phillies, the beach, shopping, and playing volleyball. This year will be my first year teaching and I am so excited and proud to be a Rider! I am very happy to be able to share my first year teaching experience with all of the amazing staff and students here at Star Hill! I am looking forward to learning just as much from the students as they will learn from me.

My name is Dan Chiavaroli and I am looking forward to being a part of the Star Hill Elementary community. I grew up in Philadelphia and moved to Delaware just before middle school; I’ve been in Delaware ever since. I graduated from Wilmington University in 2008 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. In 2015, I graduated with my Master’s Degree in Instruction: Teaching and Learning, also from Wilmington University. I have taught 3rd grade for 11 years and counting!

I enjoy spending time with my wife and three kids, one of which is starting 1st grade at Star Hill! I am a fan of all things Philly, but I love my Flyers and Eagles the most. For fun, I like to play hockey, listen to music, and experience new things.
