ABOUT ANDREA KALCHBRENNER
Andrea is a Secondary Education English Language Arts teacher from the Chicago suburbs who has a Master's degree in Reading and is also one of the Ambassador Coordinators for the Teach Better Team.
Although she began her career teaching high school 14 years ago, she soon realized middle school was her true calling, spending the majority of her time teaching seventh grade. Andrea is passionate about making reading and writing come alive for her students every single day by immersing her students (and herself) in all things related to ELA! She runs a mastery learning classroom utilizing The Grid Method framework with a focus on social-emotional learning.
As an Ambassador Coordinator, she has the amazing opportunity to network with other inspiring educators from across the world on a daily basis. Outside of the education world, Andrea is a professionally-trained dancer who enjoys sharing her love of dance with aspiring ballerinas.
Out of all of her roles, though, Andrea's greatest role is being a Mom to her two children.
