   My Name is April Gregorcich and I am your child's 5th grade teacher. This is my 8th year teaching at East Lake Elementary School. During my teaching career at ELE, I have had the privilege of teaching 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. What is so wonderful about teaching several grades over the years is that I have had the opportunity to develop my teaching abilities around the curriculum guidelines of each of these learning levels. I am looking forward to creating a bond of caring and understanding that will allow everyone to learn and grow as a productinve student within a classroom that encourages working together as a community. 





You already know about my professional background, so now I will tell you a little bit about myself. I am 49 years old and have 5 children, who are all adults. I have 4 grandchildren, 2 boys and 2 girls. They range from the age of 3 1/2 to 6 months old. I adore spending as much time with them as possible. I am married to a wonderful man named Jim. He is a great supporter of my work. He enjoys coming into the classroom and meeting my students each year. We have been married for 3 years and just recently moved from Georgia to Chattanooga, Tennessee. I enjoy running, exercising, going to antique stores, and just spending time with my famiily. I've realized over the years that having a positive attitude leads to a more positive environment for everyone. I always try to encourage others to think positive; even when things seem tough.
