TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Kat - I have taught 1st grade for 19 years. Previously I taught 6th grade, 7th grade, and 5th grade. I also worked as a museum education coordinator as well as graduate class instructor for 2 WI universities and 1 MN university. Squirrel - I am the founder of Unscribbled, Inc. - a web and graphic design company that works directly with clients to develop their businesses by strategizing and meeting their promotional needs. I am also the author of Unscribbling: the art of problem solving and fulfilling your desires.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Kat - My teaching style is centered around building positive relationships with my students. I want them to trust me that the knowledge I'm sharing with them is important. Typical lessons include modeling, movement, communication, hands-on learning, guided discovery, independent practice, and constructive feedback. I find my students learn best with mini-lessons that build on previous lessons. I also love to be a little silly at times! Squirrel - With a compulsion like a squirrel gathering nuts, I like to unscribble any problem, desire or design need that I can.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Kat - I am honored to be trusted with the education of my 6-7 year olds each and every day.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Kat- UW - Eau Claire - BS Saint Mary's University of MN - MA Squirrel- UW - Green Bay - BA

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Kat - I am from Wisconsin and have 2 sons. Kyle is going to a UW college to be a computer scientist. Dan is an entrepreneur and is currently selling real estate. I love to read, write, make art, and travel. I especially love to travel to California in order to hang out with Squirrel! Squirrel - I currently live in Central California with my husband and our dog, Boonabean. My happy place is floating on a raft on Arnold Creek, Hatfield, WI. (In the summer!)
