My name is Ms. Streelman and I am one of the lead teachers in the first grade This is my fifth year in the first grade and I’m excited to get started!
I grew up in Midland Park, NJ with my family and my two dogs, Riley and Blue. I have a younger sister who is a nurse in Chicago and a younger brother who is a senior at Calvin College. I attended Eastern Christian schools and then also studied at Calvin College. I graduated in 2015 with a bachelors degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education. My family loves to travel and although we haven’t been able to do that much lately, we did go to Michigan and Chicago to see family this summer! Right now, I live in Jersey City Heights and I enjoy exploring the neighborhood on the weekends.
In my spare time I love to read. This summer I read many, many mystery books. I also love to color and doodle, which means I love buy new markers and colorful pens! This summer, I also did lots of running. My siblings and I always do a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning! One of my favorite things to do is travel and I’m excited to explore our world with the first graders. My favorite places to travel to are London, England and my grandparents’ cabin in upstate New York.
