Mr. Michael Sivert

Welcome, Families!
 
The 2021-22 school year is my 16th year as an educator. I absolutely love being a part of the Hudson Explorers community!!
 
I am a 5th grade teacher at East Woods Intermediate. I have the absolute pleasure of working with Mrs. Nivert and Mrs. Gladstone in a co-teaching environment.
 
My entire career has been in Grades 4, 5, and 6. Throughout my years as an educator, I've taught Math, Social Studies, Science, Writing, Reading, & Reading Intervention. I have experience working with students who are Gifted & Talented, as well as students who are in the RtI (Response to Intervention) process.
 
I absolutely adore this age group, and I can't imagine working with kids at any other level. I love how students at this stage of their education love to learn, begin to take responsibility for their education, and become more independent learners. I enjoy connecting with students and building relationships with them. There isn't a day that goes by that I'm not excited to go to work.
 
I am so blessed that I found the career I was meant to have, and working with Hudson families is simply amazing!
 

Family
My mother and father live in Euclid, just a few steps away from Lake Erie. My dad is retired {and loving life!} from Ford, where he was the director of one of the stamping plants. My mom is a pediatric nurse at Cleveland Clinic Main Campus, where she takes care of kids with chronic illnesses like diabetes, mental health, and blood diseases.

I have one sister, Ann, and she is married to Brad. They live in Sunbury, Ohio (near Polaris). Jack, my nephew, is a 2nd grader. Addi, my niece, is in Kindergarten. I adore them to pieces and treasure every single moment I get to spend with them!
