Ms. Alyssa Appelson

Welcome to 3rd grade! I am Alyssa Appelson. I have an amazing little boy, Kaniela (his name is Hawaiian for Daniel). He is my entire world! He is currently going through his toddler years! I graduated in December of 2012 from Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. I obtained my Masters Degree in Cross Categorical Special Education in 2015 from Grand Canyon University. I love the continuous learning life offers. School had always been a challenge for me as I grew up. I am the type of learner who needed to know the “whole story” before I could completely comprehend and connect “the parts” learned separately. In order for me to overcome the challenges I had, I continued to strive to try and do my best. I hope to instill motivation within my students and belief that mistakes are a part of learning. I have taught kindergarten, fourth grade, and third grade! I like to challenge my students’ young minds to help them be successful. If they believe and the teacher believes the child can succeed, they will.
