6th graders at Seymour Middle School are listening to Allen Say's autobiography Drawing From Memory as a read aloud in class. Sets of partners are spending two class periods reading some of his wonderfully illustrated books.
Hello! I am proud to be a teacher at Seymour Middle School. I have a B.A. in Elementary Education and a Master's degree in Education from St. Scholastica University.
I enjoy teaching Communication Arts. My goal as a teacher is to create a warm, challenging environment that nurtures a love of reading and writing. Establishing a lifelong love of reading in young adults is giving a gift of a constant friend, a book. Preparing students to communicate intelligently and expediently for the 21st century is a tremendous task that I take on with enthusiasm. How lucky I am to be a teacher.
My family resides in Appleton with our Golden Retriever, Stogey. We enjoy outdoor activities and sporting events. My husband Jim and I are active in our church and charitable activities. Supper each evening is important to our family. It is a fun time to share our days.
