Ms. Elizabeth Vetter

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I am very excited to be a part of your child's 1st grade school year! I am originally from Rochester, New York. I attended St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York and studied Childhood and Inclusive Education for grades K-6. During my time at St. John Fisher College, I was also a Service Scholar and volunteered over 700 hours in various elementary schools in  the Rochester community. My experiences at St. John Fisher College truly helped me develop a love and a passion for teaching! Currently, I am pursing my Masters Degree from Canisius College in Literacy Education for grades K-6.  This will be my fifth year teaching at Polenta Elementary! I taught first grade for three years and third grade for one year. I am very excited to be teaching first grade and anticipate a great year together! This will be a wonderful year filled with lots of learning and adventures! Welcome to First Grade!
