Drew Charland

My name is Drew Charland, and I’m originally from Michigan where I spent the first five years of my teaching career in upper elementary grade levels. Now that my experience has grown to over a decade, I truly have learned to appreciate the atmosphere and enthusiasm found at Combs. I graduated with a B.S. in Elementary Education in 2001 from Western Michigan University and then obtained my master’s degree in 2004. As a big sports fan, I enjoy spending my free time watching or attending local sporting events. Until the Wolverines play in North Carolina, I’ll have to pull for the Tar Heels locally. I also enjoy reading, cooking, technology, and walking my dogs Barney and Elmer.
