A little about Ms. Ming...
This will be my 8th year of teaching and my 5th year here at Allendale. I taught fifth grade for the first six years of my career and joined the fourth grade team last year. I received my undergraduate degree from Michigan State University with a major in Education and minors in Spanish and English as a Second Language. I have also earned a Masters Degree from Michigan State in Teaching and Curriculum with a concentration in Literacy and Language. Go Green!!

Hobbies and Interests...

When I'm not teaching I enjoy spending time with family and friends. We are a big outdoors family and love to spend time camping and hiking. I especially love reading and to me, there is nothing better than laying in a hammock on a nice summer day reading a great book! I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter. I've read all the books upwards of 15 times, had countless movie marathons, and visited the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando multiple times. Lastly, I have a dog named Zoey who is, in my completely biased opinion, the cutest dog in the world!


I can't wait to get to know all of you and have a great year together growing and learning. Please don't hesitate to reach out through Dojo, a phonecall or an email if you have any questions or concerns. I am excited about what this new school year has in store for us!
