Spotlight on Dr. Yvette Line-Koller, Director of Special Education

The Kennett Consolidated School District is pleased to welcome Dr. Yvette Line-Koller as the new director of special education. Dr. Line-Koller joins the Kennett Consolidated School District from the Warwick School District, where she most recently served as the director of student services.

Dr. Line-Koller is a graduate of Shippensburg University where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in psychology. After graduating from Shippensburg University, Dr. Line-Koller started working in the psychology field where her position required her to work alongside educators. After experiencing the impact that educators can have on students, Dr. Line-Koller knew she wanted a career that combined both psychology and education. Inspired and ambitious, Dr. Line-Koller received her master’s degree in school psychology from Millersville University and her doctorate in education administration from Immaculata University. She then began working as a school psychologist for nine years in the Lebanon School District before becoming the director of student services for seven years in the Warwick School District.

Dr. Line-Koller is thrilled to be a part of the Kennett Consolidated School District. She admires the vibrant and diverse schools and community.

“The diverse environment at Kennett Consolidated School District is amazing,” stated Dr. Line-Koller. “The District’s diverse population provides a great opportunity for us to learn from each other and grow together as a community.”

As the director of special education, Dr. Line-Koller established a goal to build capacity within the Kennett Consolidated School District in order to educate each student to the best of the District’s ability. She also plans on building programs to provide all students with opportunities to stay in the community.

“A like-minded commitment to the mission of the Kennett Consolidated School District, ‘to provide a quality education that increases the achievement of every student,’ is what brought me to be a part of this educational community. Along with my commitment to the mission of the KCSD, I am also focused on creating partnerships between the school, families, and community; cultivating an atmosphere where every person feels valued and secure; and removing barriers to learning for each and every student. I look forward to working with students, staff, parents, and community and the opportunity for us all to grow together,” Dr. Line-Koller explained.

Dr. Line-Koller resides in Lancaster County with her husband and two daughters. In her free time, Dr. Line-Koller enjoys running, reading, and — most importantly — spending time with her family.
