My name is Elyse Cisler and I feel lucky every day to work in a classroom full of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade children! I was born and raised in Holland, Michigan and earned my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana in 2008. I completed my Montessori training before starting my first teaching position at a Montessori school in Spring Lake, Michigan. Four years later I started at Black River as a Lower Elementary Montessori teacher and earned my master's degree in Montessori from St. Catherine's University in St. Paul, Minnesota in 2013.
My husband, Patrick, and I got married in 2010. We live an active lifestyle including traveling, exploring West Michigan, and running races.
I love (yes, LOVE) vegetables, being outside, and spending time with family and friends.
