Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Michele Waters
Welcome to the first grade! I am excited about starting a new school year and am looking forward to working with your child! I have been a first grade teacher at Millbrook for 14 years now; however, this will be my 20th year of teaching. I have taught first and second grades but first grade is where my heart is. I love teaching children how to read and watching them grow as a learner thoughout the year. I have an undergraduate degree from Lander University and a Master's degree from Columbia College in Divergent Education.
Aside from teaching, I am a mom to two teenagers who keep me very busy after school. They are involved in baseball and dance. I also enjoy reading and running. One of my most favorite things to do is visit the beach. I find it peaceful and relaxing to sit by the shore and listen to the waves crash, feel the gentle sea breeze, and breathe in the salty ocean air. I try to bring in that feeling of peacefulness by having a beach themed classroom. I hope your child finds it just as inviting as I do.
