Michaela Marich with her kindergarten class at McGill Elementary.

Michaela Marich, Kindergarten teacher for McGill Elementary was selected as the Lions Club November’s Teacher of the Month.

Michaela is a first year teacher. She taught last year at McGill and loved it so much that she wanted to come back and teach at the school. Michaela is also an alumni of McGill and so she is a tiger at heart.

Michaela takes her craft seriously and works hard at improving her skills. She has great classroom management. She maximizes student contact time by using high leverage strategies and by keeping her students engaged through appropriate strategies. Her love of teaching and of the students is evident in her actions. She is firm with the students, but treats them with respect. She supports the district mission by having high expectations for her students. Michaela’s positive attitude and classroom skills make her a great asset to our school district.
