  • A Little About Me

    Welcome to first grade at Roosevelt Elementary. My name is Amy Truchan (pronounced TRUE-SH-ON). I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. This will be my 26th year of teaching at Roosevelt but my 13th year at teaching first grade. I have taught kindergarten for 11 years and 2nd & 4th at the beginning of my teaching career.

    I grew up and attended elementary through college here in Livonia. I worked at Jackson Center for four years right out of high school. I've been married for twenty-three years. I adopted 2 adorable but mischievous cats (Kingsley {all black} & Sherby) that are now 6 years old and are truly like raising children. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your family as well.
