Meet Ms. Lang

Greetings! My name is Ms. Lang and I am one of the first grade teachers at Genesee STEM Academy. I have been teaching first grade for four years and enjoy it so very much! The amount of growth the students make in a year is phenomenal and never ceases to amaze me.

 

Educational Background 

I am a product of the Flint educational system. I attended Garfield, Doyle Ryder, Pierce, and Flint Southwestern Academy. Following my high school graduation, I attended and graduated from Eastern Michigan University.  Currently, I am working on my masters degree from EMU in curriculum and instructional leadership. I have a passion for learning and try to instil that into my students.

Teaching Philosophy

I have high expectations for my little learners. Students will meet your expectations and I expect greatness! My teaching style is student centered. I pride myself on tapping into student interest and abilities. Students are different and learn in multiple ways, therefore I do my best to reach them all through different styles of instruction. A lesson in my room will typically include a lecture, writing piece, dance, song, movement, and more. At Genesee STEM Academy we teach through project based learning. This simply means that students have lots of time to learn through projects and activities. Students will forget worksheets but they will not forget something that they made.

Parent Connection

Parents are most important when it comes to a students education. I have an open door policy and encourage all parents to visit our room. I especially enjoy when parents come in to listen to students read. If you want to sign up to come in for any amount of time, please reach out to me and I will prepare a space and time for you.

 

Communication

Every Friday a parent letter is sent home from the first grade team. In this letter you will find your students spelling words, an overview of what they have been working on throughout the week, and a short note from the first grade teachers. I am also on Class Dojo and will post different pictures from class so you can see what is going on even if you can’t make it in for a visit.
