Kindergarten - Sue Pierce
I love teaching! I love Glen Lake! I feel very fortunate that my own two daughters had the opportunity to be Lakers! I graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood. I have taught K-2nd grade. When I am not at school, you’ll find me outside playing in Leelanau County.
I find such joy in helping children become more independent. This includes being a risk taker, making their own decisions, and valuing who they are and celebrating their successes. Students need clear learning goals along with clear and consistent expectations. As they learn to become more self-sufficient and practice problem solving skills their confidence grows. I also encourage students to persevere and be resilient by helping them understand the relationship between putting forth effort and achievement. I believe giving them timely feedback is vital for optimal growth. Family plays a huge role in school success. I value and cherish the families at Glen Lake.
