We are a pair of friends/colleagues with almost 50 years of combined teaching experience looking to share our unique ideas with others! We advised our high school student council for many years and created school-wide events with the purpose of including all students and promoting school spirit.
We design activities with the students in mind.
We have both received Excellence in Education recognition.
Melanie graduated from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse with a degree in Education and Spanish, and received her Master's in Professional Development from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Joan graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with a degree in Business Education, and received her Master's in Professional Development from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
We have been teaching together in the same school district for 15 years and have enjoyed our work with students in an advisory role.
