Welcome to Biology . . . Mrs. Reightler has a BS in Chemistry-Biology from West Chester University and worked in the environmental industry for about 12 years before earning her PA Level II Certification for Secondary Education in Biology from Cedar Crest College. She has been teaching Science since 1996 – and at Bethlehem Catholic since 2010. Mrs. Reightler has experience teaching subjects in: AP Chemistry, Honors Chemistry, Physics, Physical Science, Biology, Environmental Science and Seminar Science (internet driven course on current issues in Science). She is currently teaching AP Biology, Biochemistry and Human Anatomy & Physiology.   She moderates Science Olympiad (National Event) and Biology Olympic Events at Cedar Crest College.

Outside of Bethlehem Catholic, Mrs. Reightler is the Majority Share Holder of 4G Environmental Company, a Biomass Engineering firm. Earlier in her life, she was co-owner of a restaurant. This “outside” experience is what makes her unique inside the classroom bringing together “real world” knowledge of Science and discipline.

Mrs. Reightler was born and raised in the Lehigh Valley and graduated from Dieruff High School. Currently she resides in the mountains of Jim Thorpe with her husband, her two yellow Labs, Foxy Lady of the Poconos, JH and Reightler’s Shugar in the Raw, MH.

Her biggest accomplishment is raising four beautiful daughters:

  • Bryana- married and has a BS in Animal Science (Equine studies) working for Cargell Animal Nutrition;
  • Kelcie- Registered Dietician (BS Marywood University & Graduate work at Texas A & M);
  • Lauren- 2013 Graduate from Becahi and attending Ithaca College pursuing Occupational Therapy (Masters-5 year program);
  • Julianne- Senior at Becahi.

Her recent enjoyment is her 1 year old granddaughter, Adalynne. In her “free time”, she enjoys shopping (her Therapy) and loves to entertain. She lives her life with her FAITH front & center and strives to be the best person with Jesus as her Master teacher.
