I developed a love for learning and developing as a professional from my time as a student at Panhandle.

Schwieterman chose Panhandle State for the small-town atmosphere and affordable tuition. These same first impressions ended up being one of her favorite things as a student. She commented, “If I had to narrow it down, I’d say my favorite thing about Panhandle was the small class sizes and great professors. I developed a love for learning and developing as a professional from my time as a student at Panhandle.”

Schwieterman is currently teaching 7th and 8th grade Language Arts and is the district literacy coach. Through her position as a literacy coach, she organizes secondary reading interventions and coordinates literacy assessments.

“I love seeing students develop as young adults. When I get them in class as 7th and 8th graders, they’re starting to figure out who they are and who they want to be. They have big, important ideas that continue to develop through high school. It’s exciting to be a part of that process.”, said Schwieterman.

Kaylee and her husband, Scot, also a Panhandle State graduate, have been married for three years and try to attend events on campus when they can. She said, “It’s been amazing to see the campus grow in the last five years. Even with all the changes, Panhandle State still feels like home.”

Schwieterman likes to run and train for half marathons, which makes her an excellent fit for the Head Track Coach and the Assistant Coach for the Cross Country at Syracuse USD494.
