Hello! My name is Alyssa Block and I have been working in schools, in some capacity for the last five years! I started out as a substitute in the York School Department before I went to the ETEP program at University of Southern Maine and graduated with my Master's of Science in Teaching and Learning. During ETEP, I was fortunate enough to be placed in Wells, as a student teacher in fourth grade! After finishing at USM, I taught on a small island off the coast of Rockland, called Vinalhaven, for two years, as a kindergarten and first grade teacher. When I left Vinalhaven, I relocated to San Diego, California, where I worked as an academic coach at an elementary charter school. I am now excited to be back in Maine and teaching kindergarten at Wells Elementary School! When I am not teaching, I can usually be found baking, crafting, reading, exercising or relaxing at the beach. I look forward to working with you and your students this year!
