When she was just a girl, Ms. Sydney Scoralick was hit with a soccer ball while playing her favorite sport, and while concussed, she had to forgo gym class, so she filled the hole in her schedule with a technology class. Eventually, she found a love for the subject, and she tried to take all of the technology classes that she could. She discovered a talent in the subject, and went on to earn her bachelor’s degree in Science in Technology and Engineering at Millersville University, to become a teacher.

Students can find Ms. Scoralick in room 137, which is the CAD lab, where she teaches Foundations of Technology. She tries to make a comfortable environment in her room, where she has a fish tank, and various plants.

As a teacher, Ms. Scoralick shows students how to use technology to their advantage, demonstrating how to design intricate figures on the computer. She also promotes teamwork skills, asking her students to engage in collaborative activities while in randomized groups. Unlike many other teachers, Ms. Scoralick tends to shy away from homework, something that most students love about her class. 

“I just don’t see any point for it,” she said.

Ms. Scoralick was born in New York, and her favorite film is Tim Burton’s “A Nightmare Before Christmas.” Her favorite foods include Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, ice cream, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream. 

Students can utilize design skills from her class to become architects, art directors, or even technological scholars. 

“You can do anything you want to,” she said. “There are footprints on the moon.”
