SAVANNAH KLAPEC, ASSISTANT TEACHER
Hello, my name is Savannah Klapec. I am originally from Grayling Michigan in the Lower Peninsula and just recently moved to Marquette with my pup Luna. Most of our free time consists of hiking the trails and exploring Marquette. I aspire to pursue a career in Elementary education with a focus on Art. Every student learns in their own way and I hope to work towards a curriculum that can incorporate outside-the-box style learning. I encourage imagination in problem solving and creative thinking. I love working with kids and watching their progression into becoming the self they will become. After all they are the future!
