Subjects Taught
4th Grade




Welcome to 3rd grade! I am Alyssa Appelson. I have an amazing little boy, Kaniela (his name is Hawaiian for Daniel). He has been my world! He is currently going through his toddler years! I graduated in December of 2012 from Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. I obtained my Masters Degree in Cross Categorical Special Education in 2015 from Grand Canyon University. I love the continuous learning everyone has in life. School has always been a challenge for me. I am the type of learner who needs to know the “whole story” before I completely comprehend “the parts” that are learned separately. I however have always strived to do my best when in school in order for me to overcome the challenges I may face and I hope to instill that motivation within my students. I was a kindergarten teacher for one year. This is my 4th year teaching but my first teaching 3rd grade and I am SO excited! I like to challenge my students’ young minds to help them be successful. If they believe and the teacher believes the child can succeed, they will.
