At a Glance – Ms. Katherine Kalbfleisch

As I teach my students each day, I work to inspire and mold their young, impressionable minds academically, emotionally and socially. I want my students to recognize their strengths and give them the opportunities to use these strengths.

What I love most about teaching is watching the pleasure of discovery. It’s wonderful to see children use their understanding of concepts and strategies, as they individually grow and develop academically.

Fun fact: My family home was created from a very, very old and abandoned, one-room school house! So, you could say, I have literally lived in/at school!!! Every time I have entered the 4th of July Pie Baking Contest in St. Ignace, Michigan, I have WON!!
