Hi, my name is Cherie Graham. I have taught in Cassopolis for 26 years. I've taught 2nd, 4th, and 5th grade. The last several years I've been teaching 31A small reading groups and reading recovery, which is a one on one intensive reading intervention for first grade students. I am looking forward to using these reading strategies with a whole class. I live in Mattawan with my husband, my daughter Jillian, my son Max, and our dog Bonnie. My kids are in 10th and 12th grade and keep us super busy. Jillian dances on a dance team and Max plays every sport that he can. He's currently taking up golf. Bonnie has tons of energy and loves to go running and walking with me. In my free time I love to go to our cabin up north, go to the beach, read, and work out at the gym. I should have spent more time in the gym rather than reading at the beach this summer! I am looking forward to a great year with your children.
