The Doctor Is In: Ten Questions With Dr. Schuit Ph.D.

By Kaitlyn Repman

Dr. Schuit, who is now formerly known as Ms. Schuit, is a teacher at Central Dauphin High School. She teaches Health and Physical Education, and has recently just earned her P.H.D, which is a huge accomplishment for her. Not only does Dr. Schuit help her students succeed in the classroom, but she has created a safe space environment for her students. I had the chance to sit down with Dr. Schuit and get an insight on who she is and what she provides students at Central Dauphin.

A: My kindergarten PE teacher did.

Q: Where did you go to college?

A: Messiah College.

Q: Why did you put up the note board in your room, where inspirational quotes are written?

A: Health psychology and behavioral medicine.

A: Yes
