Meet the 4th Grade Teachers

MRS. HENLEY - Math   (pictured right)
     This is my 18th year working for Kalamazoo Public schools.  My husband 
and I have two children.  My son is 12 years old, in 8th grade, and my 
daughter is in 1st grade.  We enjoy going to sporting 
events together and spending time outside in the summer.  

MRS. LABELLE - Reading  (pictured center)
    I have been teaching for 26 years.  I have two daughters, one is in 
college and one is a senior at Kalamazoo Central.  I love to read and garden. 

MRS. FRITZ  -  Science/Social Studies  (pictured left)
      I have been teaching a handful of years.  I am a proud parent of three 
KPS graduates.  I am a nature lover and enjoy hiking, backpacking, gardening 
and reading. 

MS ELZINGA - This is my first year in KPS, but after teaching English in Nepal 
I am ready for just about anything! My favorite part of teaching is watching 
students surpass their own expectations. When I'm not at school, I enjoy 
cooking, photography, and soaking in the sunshine.
