Mrs. Charity Lemke

I love teaching young children with the great team of educators at Bryant/Pattengill!  The community and families are warm, caring and fun.  The children bring joy and a smile to my face each and every day.


Holland, MI

I love the beach, boating, reading, sitting by a fire, drinking coffee and traveling with my family!

We have an English Yellow Lab who is full of energy and drags me out for daily walks.

Years of Teaching

My husband, Tyson, and I have been married for over 18 years.  We have 3 wonderful boys:  Caleb-13, Nolan-11 and Griffin-8.

Favorite Childhood Memory
My favorite school memory was going to the Young Author’s Conference in second grade with my story called Rainbowland.
