Rob Chakler
Personal Info
Email: rob.chakler@patch.com Hometown: Huntingdon Valley, PA Birthday: April 1, 1984 Rob Chakler graduated from Penn State University in 2006 with a degree in Journalism. He's also a Lower Moreland High School graduate (2002) and is excited about coming back to the township as its Patch editor. He grew up in the area since the age of 5, and was a staple on the school basketball teams since 7th grade, where the team finished with a winning record once in those six years. After graduating from college, Rob served as a copy editor and staff writer for the The Trentonian for the last four years. He was primarily a sports writer, but also wrote on a variety of subjects while in Trenton. Growing up he enjoyed his summers at Camp Kweebec, an overnight camp he attended for 11 years, part as a camper and part as a counselor. When he's not out and about in Lower Moreland covering stories, Rob enjoys playing sports, going to the driving range, relaxing and watching a Seinfeld episode he's seen 20 times already, eating small meals, and playing video games during his downtime.

The class sizes are small and everyone tends to know who everyone else is and there are many concerned parents whenever they hear of an issue about their kids. There are also a lot of new development groups wanting to build houses and commerce in the surrounding areas.
