Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education, English & Political Science from Western Michigan University - Go Broncos!
Master of Arts in Reading & Literacy K-12 from Central Michigan University - Fire Up Chips!
Hello there! My name is Chelsea Rood. I was just married in June 2022, so some of you may be familiar with me as Chelsea Ott. I have been teaching at Lakeshore for 6 years, and I am a proud Lancer! I earned my bachelor's degree from Western Michigan University in 2016 and my master's degree from Central Michigan University in 2021. I am a licensed reading specialist in the state of Michigan, and one of my greatest passions in life is reading and the science of how children read. In addition to being an avid reader, I also love hiking, camping, going to the beach, and spending time with my husband and dogs.
At LMS, I teach 7th grade ELA, as well as 7th Grade ELA Extended Time, which is an elective class that provides extra support in ELA and other courses as needed.
I also lead LMS Student Council in partnership with Kati Hooper. Student Council is a great opportunity for any student to take a leadership role at our school. If you are a student or a parent/guardian of a student who may be interested, please don't hesitate to reach out via email (email@example.com) and ask about this opportunity! This club lasts from September to May, and we meet once a week.
If you are a parent or guardian of a child who is currently in my class; and you are looking for things like homework, class information, etc., please ask your child to see his/her Google Classroom. Anything we do in class can be found there! Additionally, if you are not signed up for our team's Remind, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can get you signed on and in-the-know, regarding happenings in all of your child's classes.
