Hello from Ms. Michelle! I have been working with preschool families in the SPARK program since 2017. SPARK, or Supporting Partnerships to Assure Ready Kids, is a kindergarten readiness program that works to prepare preschool students and their families to start school with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. SPARK works with your child's preschool teachers to reinforce and build on what they learn in preschool. Children and their "grownup" meet with me one-on-one, every two weeks for 30 minutes, to read books, do fun activities, and improve oral language skills.
I have a BS in Communication Studies from Indiana University and completed an alternative social studies teaching license through OSU's Intensive Pedagogical Training Institute in 2017. I am currently completing my Master's in Elementary Education (graduating in November 2020!!) and am looking forward to working with New Miami Elementary students for many years in the future. Go Vikings!!
