assistant Principal, Mr. DAVID Archer

My name is David Archer, and I am very excited to introduce myself as your new Assistant Principal. I am honored that I was chosen to assist in leading such an amazing school community. I have heard nothing but positive things about the students, teachers and parent community of Susquehanna Township High School.  I’ve already had the opportunity to become acquainted with members of the leadership team and office staff, all of whom have been welcoming and enthusiastic about the school and upcoming school year.  The welcoming atmosphere has already helped me feel like part of the Susquehanna Township family.

With regard to my credentials, I come to you with 20 years of experience as an educator in urban and alternative settings as well as building community partnerships spanning the elementary, middle and high school levels.  During my career, I’ve had the privilege of engaging students as a paraprofessional, certified educator, and administrator.  Most recently, I have spent the last seven years in the Harrisburg School District as a Secondary Social Studies Teacher and Interim Assistant Principal at Rowland Academy.  I believe my professional and personal experiences will provide a new perspective to the successes of our school community.

My experiences have helped me acknowledge and appreciate the interconnection of the social, academic and behavioral transitions of students.  I wholeheartedly believe that great schools are the result of great teachers and staff focused on the best interests of the student.  My primary goal is to support you in your continued successes and to promote the achievements of our scholars. 

I am excited about the upcoming school year and look forward to working with Dr. Smith and Ms. Jenkins to ensure that the scholars have a school year filled with quality instruction and fun.  I also look forward to meeting each of you.  In the coming weeks, if you have any questions of me, or would like to touch bases for a chat, please feel free to message me and we can arrange a mutual agreeable time to meet.
