Hello. My name is Mrs. Welch. I am a kindergarten teacher at North Elementary and have been teaching in Comstock for 18 years. I grew up in Jackson, Michigan and moved to Kalamazoo to attend

Western Michigan University. I graduated from Western with a Bachelors of Science in Education, and minors in Elementary Education, Science and Integrated Creative Arts. I also hold a ZA Endorsement in Early Childhood Education.

I live in Mattawan with my husband, Matt and my eleven year old son, Blake. We also have a gray and white cat named Smokey. When I am not at school or working at home, I enjoy spending as much time as I can with my family. We like to play in the yard, watch Blake participate in sports, visit family and friends, watch movies, read, play golf, ski, travel and try to find things to do that we have never done before!

In all my years of teaching and grade levels taught, I enjoy teaching kindergarten the most. This is the one year, I feel, that you can see the most student growth: academic, social and emotional. There is nothing more fulfilling then watching the light bulb turn on and seeing the excitement on those little faces when they finally say, "I did it!"
