BIOGRAPHY

Michelle Habel

Reading Specialist

I am so excited to be a part of an innovative school that helps students excel and gain confidence in areas where they need the boost.  I have been a teacher for several years and have loved my time here at Franklin Discovery.  My specialty is reading.  I love helping students learn and grow with their reading skills.  I have always loved reading since I was very little, so much so, that I went on to get my bachelor's degree in English Literature.  Later, I decided my love of reading should be able to help some of those who struggled, so I got my license and became a teacher.  I love opening students' eyes to the amazing world that is out there driven by pure imagination.  Now I am graduating with my Master's degree in Instructional Design with a technology focus.  I love learning and I'll continue to keep learning my whole life. 

About me personally, I am the mother of four amazing daughters, who are the loves of my life.  I am passionate about travelling with my family, and I especially love travelling to Europe.  History is the driving force behind most of my travels, and that definitely enhances my experiences as I discover new places and cultures.  I also love reading, as I said before.  If I had all the time in the world, I would sit with a book on my patio on a beautiful Fall day and just read forever.  Ah, to dream.
