The school year starts Tuesday, and with it comes a host of new faces in different roles around the district.
To help you get to know your educators a bit better, Cranberry Patch is launching “New Faces,” a series of mini-profiles. Today, we feature Jeff Roberts, cyber service coordinator.

Tell us about your new role at Seneca Valley. What are your goals for the school year? What are you most excited about?
I was recently appointed to be the district’s cyber service coordinator. In that role, I have the privilege of working with the hundreds of our students in grades K through 12 that take cyber classes. Many of our students take one or two online classes to free up room in their schedule to pursue their interests, while others take all of their classes online.
Seneca Valley is a leader in online education in Pennsylvania, so it is my role to continually refine and expand the opportunities that we offer to our students.
This school year I would like to support the faculty that teach our online classes and find even better ways for our students to interact with each other.
I am excited to support our students’ success in their classes. I am fortunate to be part of one of the best cyber programs in the state!
We want to get to know you better. Tell us about your life outside the district. Any fun hobbies?
I have a wonderful wife and two young children. We love to take day trips to visit places around the region. The zoo has been a top destination lately.
Personally, I have always been interested in water sports. In my teens and twenties I was interested in waterskiing and whitewater rafting.
Lately, my interests have shifted to boating at Moraine State Park. I tried stand-up paddle boarding last week, so based on that experience a paddleboard might be the next "boat" in my garage.
What is your own favorite school memory?
I went to school in Indiana, PA and I have lots of good memories of the friendships that I made there. I remember swimming for Indiana High School and bringing home a WPIAL section championship.
Also, I’m pretty sure I can still play the high school fight song, “Cherokee,” on the saxophone from my days in the marching band.
