Instructor - Amy Kaltz
Amy has a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Language Arts and a master’s degree in Special Education with an endorsement in Autism Spectrum Disorder from Oakland University. She has always enjoyed working with kids of all ages and took many classes in Early Childhood Development when completing her Master’s degree. She subbed in many school districts for an assortment of grades and subjects before landing her first teaching job in a first grade classroom. Once she completed her master’s degree she received a position teaching students with Autism Spectrum Disorder in a categorical classroom for elementary students in Grosse Pointe Public Schools. She taught there for 5 years before deciding to take time off to be home with her daughter. Since taking time off from being in the classroom full time, she has started tutoring and sharing her love of literacy by selling Usborne books. She loves watching children learn or experience something new and is excited to be teaching again. On top of beginning to teach classes here, Amy is happy to talk with caregivers of children with special needs about anything they may need help with.
