Michelle Yarger

Welcome to first grade!

Welcome to first grade!

Hi! My name is Michelle Yarger and I am your child’s new 1st grade teacher.  This is my 17th year of teaching.  10 of those years were spent teaching in North Carolina. I am from Tiffin and graduated from Columbian High School and Bowling Green State University. I got my master’s degree from Elon University in North Carolina.  My husband and I have 4 children. Samantha-10, Tyler- 6, Claire-2, and Nolan-1.  Tyler and Samantha are in 1st and 5th grade here at Mohawk.  Our family expanded by 8 paws over the summer when we adopted two kittens from the Humane Society.  Their names are Butters and Ruby.  In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, being outside (especially the lake), and going to concerts/listening to music.  

Even though this year will be like no other, it's still going to be a great year!  I look forward to having fun, learning new things,  and getting to know your child!  

Please email me at, message me on Remind, or call the school ext: 1121 if you have any questions or need anything!

Mrs. Yarger
