Abby Gold is the principal at North Hopewell Elementary School. She is in her 25th year in the Red Lion Area School District. Mrs. Gold earned her undergraduate degree at York College of Pennsylvania and both her Reading Specialist certificate and Administrative degree from Mc Daniel College in Maryland. She began her career as a 6th grade teacher and then transferred to 5th grade. After 8 years of being a classroom teacher, Mrs. Gold served as a Reading Specialist for the district. As a Reading Specialist she had the opportunity to work in many of the elementary schools throughout the district. For two years she occupied the District Content Literacy Specialist role, which allowed her to work with K-12th grade teachers. That job provided her with the experience she needed to make the move to being a principal. Abby thoroughly enjoys being part of the community where she grew up. Winterstown is a great place to be and she is looking forward to another fabulous year.
On a personal note, she is married and has two children, a boy and a girl. Her son is currently a freshman in college at Washington and Lee University and her daughter is in 11th grade. They keep her very busy in the evenings and on weekends. Mrs. Gold enjoys running, reading, shopping and watching her kids participate in sporting events. She also has a golden retriever named Maui, who is her baby.
