Michelle Pollock
Job Title
Classroom Teacher
Hanover Schools
My name is Michelle Pollock. I am a first grade teacher in Hanover, Massachusetts at the Cedar School. This is my 20th year teaching (all in grade one in Hanover!). Prior to that I worked as a reading tutor. Teaching the primary grades has given me a strong background in reading and math. I also hold an Orton Gillingham certificate, this has given me an in depth understanding of phonics and reading development . Over the years I have found a passion for incorporating technology into my curriculum. I have recently rediscovered how much joy teaching other adults brings me as well as working collaboratively to develop new ways to engage the kids in front of us. The pandemic allowed me to begin to work more deeply with the google suite and incorporate some of the other technology based platforms that can be embedded as lessons with slide decks.
When I am not working on my endeavors in education, I enjoy running and have recently completed 3 half marathons. I also enjoy spending time with my family, which includes two teenage daughters, two rescue dogs, and my husband. We live on the South Shore and are fortunate enough to be between the ocean and some beautiful ponds.
I am looking forward to sharing what I have learned and created with interactive slide decks.
