• Meet the Teacher

    My name is Theresa Vance and I am one of the kindergarten teachers at Carrie Knause. I am a graduate of Central Michigan University and received a Master of Arts degree in Reading from CMU as well.  I am a busy mom of two active boys, Jackson and Jensen.

    I enjoy spending time with my family. They mean the world to me and I do not know what I would do without their love and support. On weekends, I spend a lot of time traveling to see my family and friends. I also enjoy going for walks, relaxing on Lake Huron, and attending CMU sporting events.

    I run a structured, well-organized classroom. I like to keep my students busy and help each one of them become as independent as possible. It is very important to build an open line of communication with parents and for this to happen, I send home a monthly Kindergarten newsletter along with our "red" Friday Folders.                                                                                                                                                                           
    Carrie Knause is a great place to work! The staff is caring, supportive, and friendly. We are all committed to helping children succeed.

    I look forward to working with you and your child this year.  Welcome to Kindergarten!
