    Ms. Molitor

    Casey Molitor has been with the Norristown Area School District since 2017.  She came to us from the Downingtown Area School District, in which she served as an elementary supervisor of special education for almost 3 years.  Prior to serving in that role, she was an Emotional Support teacher in the district for fourth and fifth grade students for about 7 years. Before entering into a school district, Dr. Molitor taught for 3 years in alternative education in Montgomery and Delaware Counties.

    Dr. Molitor earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Delaware, obtaining both her elementary and special education certifications.  After recognizing her students’ needs as they relate to reading, she went to West Chester University to obtain her Master’s degree in Education and her reading specialist certification.  She then went on to pursue her Principal’s certification at Penn State Great Valley and later her Special Education Supervisor certification from Delaware Valley University. Recently she earned her doctorate from Immaculata University in Educational Leadership.  Through all of my teaching and educational experience, my passion has always been special education.

    Dr. Molitor lives in Skippack, PA with her husband, Tim and her 2 children.  She enjoys spending time with her family and friends and occasionally taking part in half marathons and other types of running events.
