Who is Miss Corey?
As you can see from the picture above, I have a pretty large family and that's not even all of them! This was taken at my cousin's wedding when I was the Maid of Honor. I am very close to all of them and you will hear many stories including my crazy clan!
I am a graduate of Michigan State University with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I have a focus in Language Arts and a minor in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. Even though these are my degrees, I have a passion and excitement of teaching every subject!
I've had many experiences in the classroom. I taught 1st grade in Lansing, Michigan and last year, I spent the whole school year in a 5th grade classroom in Grand Rapids Public Schools. I absolutely loved the experience and am so glad to continue to teach it again this year!
As you can tell, I am a huge Spartan fan. Green runs deep in my family! I have an older brother who graduated from Michigan State University with an accounting degree and also a younger sister who is attending MSU as a junior right now! I attended almost all of the home MSU football games and was involved in many programs at MSU. I was the President of the International Honor Society for Educators and spent a lot of time planning and running events that helped the educational community around MSU.
I mentioned having a brother and sister, but I also have a pet cat. His name is Dexter and is four years old now. I am a huge animal lover and have had many pets growing up. I can't wait to keep adding to my little fur family!
I love to travel, and experience as many adventures as possible. In the photo on the bottom left, I am jet skiing in Florida and yes, those are two real dolphins jumping right next to me! I have also been to other places around the United States such as Washington D.C., Colorado, Florida, Alabama and New Orleans!
I am a very active person who loves hiking, jet skiing, snowboarding, as well as other activities such as playing softball and swimming. I am currently the JV Softball coach at TKHS! I'm also a HUGE Lions and Tigers fan.
So that's a little bit about me! I'm looking forward to be your teacher this year and getting to build a relationship with each one of you!
