School of Education & Sociology Major 1996-2001
Principal Minocqua J1 School District
During my most recent family reunion my aunt asked me to reflect upon my experience in public education, specifically being a principal. They reminded me that when I was in high school I had told them that is what I was going to be when I grew up. I answered that I have never had such a difficult job in my life, and that it was also the best job in world. I’m still not sure about the growing up part…
Our profession of public education is the most noble and rewarding one. I would encourage students to look into teaching. There is no more fulfilling responsibility than help children to learn and grow. It is a job that is more than a paycheck, it is a calling. The profession is in demand of passionate people willing to make a difference. It is a great career choice that will put you in stable well paying job in which you can be a positive influence on your community.
If anyone is in need of student teaching, support, advice, etc, please feel free to contact me at anytime. I am always looking to help a fellow Beloiter or advocate for our profession
