Hello Rising Sun families! I am so excited to return with the first grade teaching team this school year. I earned my bachelor's degree from Wilmington University in Early Childhood Education, this is my 10th year teaching.  I've worked in classrooms from infants through 1st grade!  I love all the personalities that shine through in first grade, I enjoy getting to know all the students, and sharing funny stories with them.  My favorite part of first grade is language arts, because I love reading!

When I'm not at school I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband Matt, daughter Anabelle, and I love to play board games and card games.  We have three dogs and enjoy taking them on walks to the river where they can play and splash around. I also have been known to enjoy a superhero movie from time to time as well (team Superman!)

Hello Rising Sun!  I am very excited to be teaching first grade again!  This is my tenth year teaching first grade at Rising Sun.  I love watching first graders learn and grow.  It’s truly amazing to see their excitement and passion for school.  I knew at a young age that I wanted to be a teacher.  I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Towson University.  Shortly after, I completed my Master’s Degree at Towson in reading.

When I am not teaching, I am spending time with my family and friends.  I have two boys at home.  Parker is five and Camden is almost three.  They are so much fun and my students always hear a lot about them.  We are also very excited to be expecting our THIRD boy this year!  As a family, we enjoy vacationing and day trips to the zoo, walks around our neighborhood, playing games, dancing around the house to music, going to playgrounds, and watching movies. 

I am looking forward to another successful school year!  If you have any questions or concerns, the best way to contact me is through email at alklusak@ccps.org.  You can also contact me through the school at 410-658-5925.  Thank you in advance for all of your support at home.  We are going to have a great year!

I love gardening, being outdoors, hiking, and enjoying the beautiful world around me.

This is my fifth year teaching first grade at Rising Sun Elementary School.  I graduated from the University of Delaware in May of 2014 with a dual B.S. degree in Elementary Teacher Education and Special Education and a mini concentration in Middle School English.  I have wanted to be a teacher since I was a little girl! 

I have lived in Cecil County since I was two years old.  Growing up, I attended Kenmore Elementary, Cherry Hill Middle, and Elkton High.  

On July 1, 2017, I married my husband, Mr. Williams! We are excited to begin our lives together!

I am looking forward to having a great school year with your child! 

Go Tigers!
