Mr. Jeffrey Glazer

Gifted Support

I've been a teacher in Springfield Township since 2002.  For the first 16 years of my career I taught 3rd and 4th grade, and these days I'm the gifted support teacher at Erdenheim...working with students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades.  I enjoy working with students and families in this capacity, and helping to create a safe, welcoming environment for all learners.  Throughout my career I've tried to stay true to three core principles: learning should be fun; every young person has the power to determine his/her own success; and that school is about much more than just academics. Being the enrichment teacher allows me to lean upon those principles, while also challenging kids to grow as both people and students every day!

Some other stuff about me...I was born and raised in Clarks Summit, PA and attended Abington Heights High School. I am not only a certified teacher, but also a certified school counselor. I currently reside in Blue Bell with my wife, Cara, and two daughters, Lyla (13) and Emerson (10).  

My Favorites:

  • food: sushi
  • book: Maniac Magee
  • band: Pearl Jam
  • hobbies: travelling, coaching, reading, music, house projects, exercising, golfing, hanging out with my daughters, spending time with family and friends.
