Ms. Carissa Tetzlaff

Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Carissa Tetzlaff and I have been working at Bruce Vento since 2018. I am very passionate about teaching Kindergarten, as I create an environment in which students love to come to school and build a foundation for life-long learning. As a National Geographic certified educator, I am always looking for ways to tie in environmental education, geography and a love for nature. I also teach mindfulness strategies to my students in order to regulate our bodies and create a calm atmosphere in which we are ready to learn. I feel so blessed to work with the amazing students and staff of Bruce Vento, and look forward to learning and growing from my students each year!
