About Mr. B‎ > ‎

Background Information

Hello! I am Justin Birckbichler, or Mr. B. This is my fourth year of teaching fourth grade. I am new to Margaret Brent Elementary and extremely excited to be here! I came here from Hilda J. Barbour Elementary School in Front Royal, VA. 

I graduated from Shippensburg University in Shippensburg, PA in May 2013.  After completing my student teaching in a third-grade classroom, I earned a degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Early Childhood Education. In August 2015, I completed my Master of Science in Curriculum and Instruction degree through Western Governors University. Although I have spent the majority of my life as a Pennsylvania resident, I have relocated and live in Fredericksburg. I live with my five-year-old cat, Conner, and my fiancee (who is also a teacher!) 

Whenever I get a free moment, I love to read thriller/mystery novels, work in my garage workshop, spent time outside in my hammock or in my firepit, and cook new meals. I really enjoy working with technology, both in the classroom and for personal use. I am a Google for Education Certified Innovator and Trainer. I am both honored and excited to continue my career in fourth grade, and I sincerely look forward to working with you and your child to further their education.
