I am proud to have been the Director of the Phyllis Fratzke Childhood Learning Laboratory since 1999. We work intentionally to meet the needs of the families, children, college students and community stakeholders while continuing to grow and learn. I also have the pleasure to teach within the Child Development department, typically the CD 218 Early Childhood Program Administration and CD 106, Health, Safety and Nutrition.
My husband Herm and I live near Heritage hill and have two adult daughters, Jazzy and Britany. Jazzy is finishing Graduate School in Indiana in Communications. Britany works at the MSU Broad Art Museum and attends Graduate School part time at GVSU. We split our time between our cottage in Branch and Grand Rapids throughout the year. I really enjoy time with family and friends, kayaking, walking and college sports.
