Mrs. Starr

Hello, welcome to our classroom website!
      Growing up in West Bloomfield, I have had the privilege of being a part of a culturally diverse community.   As  a student, I attended  Green Elementary school (now Sheiko).   I went to Calvin College to receive my B.A. in Education and a secondary concentration in Reading.   I student taught at the International School of Amsterdam, Holland.  Working with children from all over the world  was a fun and enriching experience!   During my summers I worked as a camp counselor for the West Bloomfield School District.   As a teacher, I have been in the West Bloomfield school district since 1987.  I have taught every elementary grade, except for first grade.
 I love teaching because I love children and am touched by their lives every day!
I love this quote below.   It encapsulates my 'philosophy' of education:
 Teaching is more than imparting knowledge, it's inspiring change.  Learning is more than absorbing the facts.  It is acquiring understanding. -- William Arthur Ward
