About Dr. Timothy Mitzel

Dr. Mitzel grew up in eastern York County, attending Eastern York School District from kindergarten through commencement.  After receiving his B.S. in Elementary Education from Lebanon Valley College, he came back to his roots to teach second grade at Canadochly Elementary School.  He earned his Master’s of Education Degree from Pennsylvania State University. Mitzel went on to earn his Doctorate in Educational Administration from Immaculata University while continuing to lead schools in the Littlestown School District as both Assistant Principal and Principal. In 2010, he rejoined Eastern York School District as the Principal of Kreutz Creek Elementary School. Two years later, he was named the High School Principal at Eastern York where he has been serving the York Community ever since.

Honors Ceremony

The Kreutz Creek Honors ceremony will include commentary by guest speakers who will pay tribute to Dr. Mitzel. Among those speaking at the event will be Dr. Rita Becker, superintendent of Eastern York School District. Their tributes will be followed by a reception.   Anyone interested in attending the November 4th celebration should RSVP by emailing the name of attendees to [email protected].  Kreutz Creek Library, a branch of York County Libraries, is located at 66 Walnut Springs Road in Hellam and has been transforming lives and serving communities since 1979.
