The Mosaic School (The Etude Group)
Math Teacher & Lead Advisor
Sheboygan, WI
I currently serve as the mathematics teacher and lead advisor at The Mosaic School, a part of The Etude Group serving grades 6-8. I graduated from Carroll University in May of 2011 with a degree in Education and minors in Mathematics and Adaptive Education. I had always been interested in teaching in a unique environment, and receiving a job at a Charter school focused around project based learning and building community was a great fit. During my second year of teaching, I went back to graduate school to pursue a degree in Educational Administration, which I later received from Concordia University in May of 2015. The work that I am currently doing as lead advisor at The Mosaic School is one that I am quite passionate about, as our advisory program helps shape our school community. Throughout the past 5 years I have been able to grow along with our school in helping understand how to foster creativity and innovation throughout a connected school community.
