Miss Tressler
 
I’m the first grade teacher, Miss Tressler. I grew up right here in Defiance and graduated from Ayersville High School in 2017. I am a recent graduate from Bluffton University where I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education with an Intervention Specialist minor. This is my first year of officially teaching, however I have had lots of experience before. Such as being an assistant teacher at Defiance Dance Studio and being an early literacy tutor. In my free time I love to play frisbee with my dog, Cyrus, take care of my many house plants, or watch the latest Marvel movie. 
 
Mission Statement: 
My mission as a teacher is to make sure that every student that walks into my classroom feels welcomed, loved, and supported. Without having love and support within the classroom, students are unable to have the tools they need to succeed. Building those strong connections and relationships with students will allow them to grow into a great learner and person. 
 
Bible Verse:
“Let all that you do be done in love.”  1 Corinthians 16:14
