Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome!! My name is LaKeisha Drummer. I am honored to begin this learning journey with you, and your child. As your child’s teacher, I would like to take the time to introduce myself.
I was born and raised in Ann Arbor. I am a graduate of Ann Arbor Public Schools. I attended Michigan State University, where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Education. GO GREEN! GO WHITE! I also have a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Eastern Michigan University.
I have received extensive training and excellent instruction through my experiences at Michigan State University, Eastern Michigan University, and during my career in the Ann Arbor Schools. As I enter into my 12th year of teaching, I am looking forward to spending this year teaching and learning with your child, as well as working with you to make that experience as meaningful as possible. I am also a very proud mother! My daughter is a Carpenter Cougar as well! I enjoy spending time with my daughter, reading, cooking, and traveling.
I strongly believe that all students will learn. I have high expectations for all students regardless of their background and or personal circumstance. It is my goal to ensure that I maintain a welcoming, safe, and inclusive classroom community in which all students feel successful. I hope to instill a life-long passion of learning in each student. I believe that to be an effective educator I must do my best to accommodate the different needs and interest that are represented in the classroom. I would like to clarify that fair does not mean that each child gets the same thing. Instead fair means that each child receives what he or she needs.
I am excited to work with this wonderful group of children! Please know that each day I will do my very best to ensure that your child has a meaningful, authentic, and engaging learning experience. If you have any questions, comments, and or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for all that you do to ensure your child’s success. I know that we will have a great year!
