Welcome to the 2015-1016 school year. My name is Mrs. Whitfield. I am very excited that I will be your child's second grade homeroom teacher this year. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Michigan State University. I also earned a Master's degree in Education from Cambridge College. Last year I decided to add another endorsement to my certification by attending Wayne State University. I obtained my teacher education certification from one of the leading programs in the country, Michigan State University.

My hobbies include playing tennis, biking and listening to music. My husband and I enjoy spending time with our family and our dog Teddy. I have a passion for teaching and learning.

This year your child will embark on a very rewarding journey. Their experiences in my classroom will serve to equip them with the tools necessary to be successful not only in the classroom, but also in society. I place a high emphasis on team work and developing lifelong self-directed learners.
