Hi! My name is Anna Larzelere and I am so excited to be part of the St. Mary’s family!I grew up in the Clio / Mt. Morris area and went to St. Mary’s from kindergarten through eighth grade. I graduated from Powers Catholic High School in 2004 and attended the University of Michigan - Flint, graduating in December 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Education. I majored in Language Arts and have a minor in mathematics. I completed my semester of student teaching at St. Mary's and have taught here since Fall 2013. I have taught kindergarten and third grade at St. Mary's, and am so excited to be teaching in our K/1 Multi-Age classroom this school year!
My family is very important to me, just like I know your families are to all of you! I met my husband Chris at Powers and we have been married since 2009. We are parishioners here at St. Mary’s and live in Mt. Morris. Our daughter Elizabeth was born last August, and she brings happiness and love to our lives every day.
I take my students interests and academic needs into heavy consideration when planning my instruction. When you enter my classroom, you will find students working independently, as a whole group and in partnerships to achieve personal goals and classroom objectives. Students are encouraged to take risks, think critically and develop virtue as they make their way through the challenges of the curriculum. I hope to instill a love of learning in my students while helping them grow in faith and friendship. Mrs. Larzelere's Class Webpage
