1st Grade


Ms. Lindsay Novotny

I am currently in my fourth year of teaching first grade at GHA. I love my position because not only am I able to teach children but I’m also able to learn and grow with them! Outside of school, I enjoy reading and spending time with my dog, Jackson. My experience at GHA has been an incredible one, and I cannot wait to see what the years have in store for our school, families, and community!

I have been with GHA since we opened in 2013. I have earned my Bachelor’s Degree in social work and my Master’s Degree in education from the University of Michigan, Flint. I absolutely love waking up each day to teach my darlings and hopefully make a difference in their lives. I became engaged this summer to Tom Kraemer. I have two boys: AJ who is 22 and James who is 13. I also have three cats, two dogs, and one potbelly pig.
