Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I am excited to begin my 4th year at Carpenter!
About Mrs. Chiv
My name is Mrs. Chiv and I am delighted to be at Carpenter Elementary School as a 4th grade teacher! I taught in Van Buren Public Schools for 14 years and I am excited to begin my fourth year in Ann Arbor Public Schools. Teaching is something that I have loved for a very long time. I attended Western Michigan University and graduated with a major in Elementary Education and a minor in French, math and science. My passion for languages led me to a three-month post-graduate study abroad stay in Guadalajara, Mexico. I studied Spanish at the University of Guadalajara Center for Foreign Students. I received my masters in Reading in 2005 and K-12 administrative certificate in 2014 from Eastern Michigan University.
