Degrees and Certifications:
Hi I’m Debra Fritz, Mrs. Fritz to my students. I am a GSRP Preschool teacher at Fennville Elementary. I grew up in Holt, which is a suburb of Lansing. After graduating from Grand Valley State University with my Elementary Teaching certificate in 2005, I moved to Bangor with my husband, Eric. For 8 years, I worked as a substitute teacher in Van Buren County and continued to grow my passion of early childhood education. I went back to college pursuing Early Childhood in 2010 and finished my Master’s degree at Western Michigan University in 2014. Now watching my daughter grow and working with preschool, I know how important preschool education is. Even though parents are their children’s first teachers, I like to know that I can assist these 4 year-olds in their beginning steps! I enjoy working with parents collaboratively and sharing in their children’s growth, strengths and “aha” moments together. I look forward to another great year at Fennville with Great Start Readiness Program.
