Meet Miss Brooke!

Owner/Head Teacher


Hello! I am a Certified Elementary Teacher and the founder of Learning Time! CLASSROOM. As a mother of four and former teacher, I have a true passion for teaching children. I founded Learning Time! CLASSROOM with one goal in mind: to create an engaging environment where students can thrive.  I wholeheartedly believe that every child deserves a chance to discover their full potential. I strive to create a warm and nurturing environment that inspires children to explore, learn and grow.

I grew up in Clifton Park and am a graduate of Shenendehowa High School. I attended the University of Masshachusetts-Amherst where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Education and Communications and a Master's Degree in Elementary Education.

Meet Miss Katie!

Preschool Class Teacher/ Private Tutor


Hello! I am a certified Pre-K, Elementary, and Special Education teacher. After years of focusing most of my time on raising my three daughters, I am thrilled to be back in the preschool environment. Teaching preschool is my passion!! I love capturing a child's imagination by creating inspiring , hands-on learning activities. My goal is to ensure that all children are learning through play to develop social, emotional, and academic growth, all while having so much fun!

I also enjoy working one-on-one with elementary students and will also be available for tutoring in the CLASSROOM. Please reach out for availability.

I am thrilled to be joining the Learning Time! CLASSROOM and look forward to meeting you!

Meet Mrs. Alheim!

Private Tutor/ SSP Teacher

Hello! My name is Kristyn Alheim and I am currently a first grade teacher at Shenendehowa.  I have a Masters Degree in Elementary and Special Education.  I recently received training in LETRS. This course is a professional learning course for instructors of reading, spelling, and related language skills. It provides educators with in-depth knowledge and tools that they can use with any reading program. LETRS helps educators understand “how” students learn to read and write, recognize the reasons “why” some students struggle, and determine “what” must be taught to increase student success. It is rooted in the Science of Reading (SOR).  
I also have 14+ years of experience in public and private education. I grew up in Massachusetts and received my bachelors degree from Quinnipiac University where I met my husband.  We then moved to Clifton Park to raise our family.  I have a son and two daughters who keep me very busy.  I love teaching and learning from my students.  
In my free time, I love to paddle board, golf and walk my dog, Bauer.
