About Me
Kindergarten Teacher
Brown Elementary
Teaching Grade

Hello! My name is Alyssa Barkovich and I am so excited to be teaching kindergarten this year! This will be my second year teaching and my first year teaching kindergarten at Brown School. Last year I taught a transitional kindergarten autism classroom through Berrien RESA before joining the wonderful staff at St. Joseph Public Schools. I received my Bachelor's degree from Central Michigan University in Special Education (Cognitive Impairments) with an Elmentary Education Certification and concentrations in Reading and Integrated Science. I am currently attending Central Michigan University for my Master's in Autism. 

I grew up in Lawton, Michigan and graduated from Lawton High School. My family currently resides over there so I spend a bit of free time visiting them. I currently live in Granger, Indiana but just bought a house in St. Joe! I am so excited to move and be a part of this community. I also have one fur baby, a French Bulldog named Bixby! 

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions! I look forward to a fantastic school year!
