Ms. Lizzie Andriese – Lead Teacher Rockstars
Hello! My name is Lizzie Andriese and I am incredibly excited to be apart of the Beansprout classroom and the Sprouts community! I grew up in Traverse City, Michigan and completed my undergraduate studies in elementary education and community service studies at DePaul University. I did my student teaching in 7th and 8th grade language arts and literature, just outside of the city in Hinsdale, IL. During my college career I worked with at risk students at the YMCA in West Humboldt Park as a homework helper and mentor to young girls. In addition to the YMCA work, I assisted in homework helping programs in North Lawndale and various homeless shelters. After college I moved back to Traverse City where I worked as a classroom assistant in a Montessori toddler classroom. Over the course of the two years in Montessori, I became passionate about helping young minds grow into independent and sustainable members of their communities through healthy living. I look forward to sharing and experiencing healthy movement and living with your children and beginning a wonderful start to a new chapter!
