What do I love most about teaching? There are so many reasons why I love teaching. I love the excitement and energy that I feel at the beginning of each school year, despite the fact that I have been teaching in the Hartland-Lakeside School District for more than twenty years since graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education. I received my Master’s degree in Special Education from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I love teaching for the students. My favorite times are when a student succeeds beyond their own beliefs. I love having that power to help a student realize his or her potential and help the student build confidence in themselves enough to begin the process of attempting to reach it! In teaching, every day is a new chance to make a difference.
