    Hello, my name is Lisa Abel and I am a Reading Recovery Teacher here at Townsend Elementary.  I have a Bachelors in Social Science and Psychology from Grand Valley State University, and an Elementary Teaching Certificate from Eastern Michigan University.  Currently, I am working on a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education also from Eastern Michigan University.  My teaching background includes three years as a first grade teacher and three years as a lead teacher and Director for a GSRP preschool classroom.  This is my first year in Reading Recovery and I truly enjoy helping young children become successful readers and writers.  It is truly wonderful to come to work each day and help my students develop the love of reading!
