I would like to take this time to introduce myself to you. My name is Amber Slimak and it is with great excitement that I will be teaching 2nd grade for my third year here at Nolley Elementary. I have also taught Title One Reading at Nolley for three years. I am grateful to be teaching in such a wonderful community.
I was born and raised in Akron and graduated from the University of Akron with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I also attended Walsh University for additional reading coursework at the Graduate level. My daughter Alivia is ten years old and is also a little panther. I love being a mommy and enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, traveling and shopping.
This year will definitely be a fun year! I am eager to meet and work with a whole new group of fantastic families and students this school year. I look forward to embarking on an exciting journey with your child this year. We will be spending our days building lifelong memories.
As parents and guardians, I understand that you are the most important teachers in your child’s life, and it is with that understanding that I appreciate the role that you and I each play in the partnership to your child achieving the goals set forth for him or her.
