Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Michelle Iglesias, and your student may recognize my name as a substitute! Now, I have decided to go back to teaching full time after staying at home to care for my own children! I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education from Northwest Missouri State University with a minor in music, and a Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Missouri-Columbia. I have taught many ages of students, but for most of my career I taught 5th grade and music, K-6.
Music and movement are my passion! I incorporate a lot of these concepts into my lessons! I have lived many places as an army wife, and so I bring a variety of experiences to the classroom! I am a mom of 2 kids, Mario and Kelsey. They are in 5th and 6th grade! I consider the parent and family perspective when it comes to homework and projects! Finally, I teach exercise classes too in my free time! It is good for the mind and body to stay active! This is my second year teaching 5th grade at Pinebrook, and I am so excited to continue my journey as a Puma!
