    Dear Families,

    Welcome to 2nd grade here at Strausser!  I am excited about getting to know you, and especially, your child!  I am looking forward to a fabulous year of learning and discovering together.


    My name is Jackie Michael, and this will be my 11th year of teaching.  I taught first grade for five years in the Chandler Unified School District out in Arizona, and this will be my sixth year teaching 2nd grade here at Strausser.  I am a Jackson graduate, and I attended Amherst Elementary as a child.  It is an honor to be a part of the Jackson family again.  


    Family is the main reason I relocated back to Ohio, almost three years ago.  My family is very close knit, and I couldn’t stand being away any longer.  I am a proud Aunt of four amazing little ones.  Addie will be starting sixth grade this year, and Owen will be starting third grad at Amherst.  Mia will be starting second grade at Lake Cable,and Millie will be continuing preschool. It’s so wonderful being home and being a part of watching them grow and change.


    At this time I am a proud momma to a sweet little cat that I rescued last fall. Since I don't have any children of my own yet, your little ones will be like my own. I promise I will do my best to protect and love them while they are here with me.  


    Again, I am very excited about this year and am so glad that I have the opportunity to work with such an amazing staff, students, and families.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.



    Miss Michael
