    Hello! Welcome to my wikispaces page. I hope that you find this site informative. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need assistance at mlcole@philasd.org or at (215) 248-6603.
    My name is Michelle Lutz and I am the Special Education Liaison and Special Education Teacher at Henry H. Houston Elementary School in the School District of Philadelphia. I have worked at Houston since December 2004. As a firm believer in lifelong learning, I attended Albright College and earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science. I continued my education at Albright and earned my Masters of Science degree in Special Education, while completing a published thesis entitled, "The Effects of Positive Reinforcement on the Learning Support Classroom." Currently, I hold Pennsylvania Teaching Certifications in Special Education and Middle Years English. In addition, I recently enrolled at Edinboro University to pursue my principal and special education supervisory certifications. My education has given me the opportunity to teach children in grades Kindergarten through 8th in a variety of subject matter. I am privileged to work with a great group of colleagues, students and parents at Houston and I look forward to the challenges and triumphs of each new school year!
    I am also proud to announce that in November of 2012 I achieved my National Board Certification for Teaching. I worked hard to complete the rigorous process involved for the certification and I am already looking forward to the professional opportunities that this certificate will afford me!
    On a personal note, I have been married since 2008, to my wonderful husband, Brandon. Together, we are the proud parents to our son, Will, and I am stepmom to our daughter, Jori. We also have an adorable dog, Puggles, and two loving cats, Spartacus and Persephone. In our spare time, we love to hike, play video games and eat sushi.

    Summary

    split apart.
    What causes such catastrophes? The planet is composed of layers of rock, much of it under intense pressure. When the strain becomes too great, the rock shifts or snaps. Energy from the shifting or snapping rock travels in waves. Waves traveling in the air produce the rumbling sound of the quake, but the waves on the earth's surface are more destructive, as the effects of the Alaska quake, and many others, demonstrate.
