1st Grade - Alisha Needham



My name is Alisha Needham and I love sunshine, beach waves, petoskey stones and teaching small humans big ideas. My family has three small humans in it, Ryder, Drake & Brynn. We also have many furry and scaly family members including a Boston Terrier, bearded dragon, hamster, and seven bunnies.

Glen Lake is my most favorite place to call a second home. I have been here for many years teaching first and second grade. Before I was at Glen Lake I taught multiage 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. I also spent a few years with our tiniest humans in a preschool classroom. I spent all my college years at Central Michigan University majoring in child development. I returned to CMU for my masters as a reading specialist as well. FIRE UP CHIPS!
