One thing about your school that you are most proud of?

I love that the Office of Field Experiences gets to provide future educators with their first glimpse of education from the perspective of the teacher. Teaching is an incredibly difficult, yet important and ultimately fulfilling job, and I’m proud to be a part of the UWSP School of Education because this school has a reputation for preparing students to be successful educators.

What do you enjoy most about teaching?

As a K-12 teacher, I loved talking to my fellow teachers about teaching and how to improve education. In my role at UWSP, I am excited to connect with prospective teachers in order to explore how to make positive change in education.

A piece of advice for students in your school?

Educators thrive when they are in community with each other, their students, parents, and others. Start building your community here at UWSP.
