Mrs. Schossow’s Educational Path
Marcy Elementary School
I wanted to be a TEACHER when I grew up.
Templeton Middle School
Sussex Hamilton High School
I wanted to become a TEACHER, so I participated in a volunteer field experience.
Post Secondary Path:
I wanted to become an EDUCATOR, so I attended Carthage College. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. My goal is to create an optimum learning environment for students to feel safe, cared about, engaged, and motivated.
I wanted to better instruct my students in literacy so I completed a Master of Education in Reading and obtained the 316 reading teacher certification from Concordia University. I believe that literacy provides the foundation for a child to be successful in both school and life. I am not only teaching students to read and write; I am educating them in how to apply their knowledge and skills, critically think, interpret and perceive the world we live in, and utilize digital devices.
A Message From Mrs. Schossow
In Room 53, I want to educate students to experience a high level of academic success, growth in character and responsibility, and to have a positive personal impact on them. I believe it is essential to keep a positive attitude, have a sense of humor, be fair and consistent, and have high expectations. I believe in differentiating instruction to meet the needs of my students’ individual learning styles and abilities. Teaching is not only a desired occupation, but is truly a passion of mine. I believe teachers have one of the most important and rewarding jobs in today's society and feel privileged to be part of it!
