Well, hello. I’m glad that you came to explore more about Gibraltar and me, as a teacher in the district. I am very grateful to be at Gibraltar and teaching so many of my neighbors' children. Thank you for your confidence.
I teach Social Studies, Reading, and ELA (speaking, writing, and language skills) to all sixth-grade students. Students in my classes will have online classrooms in Google Classroom as well as the physical classroom, 222. Students are invited to the Google Classrooms at the beginning of the school year. They receive these invitations via their school email.
The 2021-2022 school year will be my seventh year as a full-time teacher at Gibraltar. I spent one year prior to these years as a substitute teacher with the district. Although I have been teaching at Gibraltar for seven years, my experience as a teacher stretches well beyond my time at Gibraltar. I would say that I have always been a teacher. I have a voracious appetite for learning new things, and I love to share what I learn with others. Education empowers and enriches.
In addition to my traditional teaching position, I have taught all ages, including preschool and adults returning for high school equivalency diplomas. I have taught nutrition to children at community sites through the University Extension System. I have also taught gifted and talented students in a program with Carthage College in Kenosha. Before moving to Door County in 2009, I was a Title I Reading and Math instructor for the Racine Unified School District. My formal education and experience have given me a wonderful perspective on the breadth of education.
