My name is Llori-vantol-kreszowski-5th-gradeori VanTol Kreszowski, and I am your child’s Language Arts and Mathematics teacher.  I am looking forward to an exciting, productive year working with you and your child.  Because I will be spending each day with your child, I want to take this opportunity to tell you a few things about myself, both personally and professionally.

I have been a teacher in the Swan Valley School District at R.B. Havens Elementary for twenty years.  I received my Bachelor of Science in Education from Central Michigan University and my Masters degree in Educational Leadership from Saginaw Valley State University.   My husband and I have two beautiful children, Katrina and Derek.

My mission is to provide a positive learning environment.  I will promote academic, social and emotional growth so that my students will become responsible, self-sufficient, and productive members of our society.  I want them to develop learning skills that will lead them to be lifelong learners.

Throughout my years of teaching, I have become committed to the importance of parent involvement in a student’s education.  I firmly believe that your child receives the best education possible when you and I work together as a team.  Every Friday you will receive “The VanTol View”, which will summarize what we will be studying in class the following week.  Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns anytime.  I welcome calls and messages  My classroom telephone number is (989) 921-4276, and my email is
