Online K-2 Teacher
School office phone: 231-526-4500
Hello, my name is Mollie Carter and I am thrilled and honored to be your child’s online teacher. I grew up in Harbor Springs and I can’t tell you how excited I am to be teaching in our community. My husband and I have two children, Jack (22) and Caroline (20). We all love Harbor Springs!
I am looking forward to working with you and your child during the next school year. (I would like to let you know a little bit about myself- since I will be sharing such an important part of the day with your child).
I received my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education from Central Michigan University and hold a Masters degree in Elementary Education from Marygrove College in Detroit, Michigan. My educational experiences include teaching preschool, young fives, kindergarten, first grade, second grade and third grade. I have really enjoyed teaching at all of the elementary levels.
Your child is very important to me. Your child deserves my full respect, understanding and compassion. My philosophy of education is as follows:
It is my firm belief that all students are capable of learning. Children develop emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially each at varying rates from learner to learner. Children are naturally curious and exploratory. Therefore, learning at all levels is enhanced through active manipulation of objects and experiences. As a teacher, it is my mission to help facilitate the development of each student into a life long learner who can stand confidently, participate fully and contribute meaningfully in our world.
I look forward to working with you and your child. I know that together we will accomplish many great things this year. You will be hearing from me often in the way of newsletters, special notes and phone calls. You are the most important people in your child’s life, and your involvement and support will mean a great deal. Your input will help to ensure your child’s success.
Please feel free to contact me with comments, questions or concerns! My door is always open to you!
