"When it comes to education, I am most passionate about creating a positive learning environment for the students.”

Q & A with Ms. Schelb

 

Highlight of the year:
As a first year teacher, the highlight of my year so far was the first day of school! As nervous as I was, I loved getting to welcome the students into the classroom so they could learn and explore in the first grade. This was a great time for me to get to know all of the students and share my love for school with them as we began our school year together.
Passion:
When it comes to education, I am most passionate about creating a positive learning environment for the students. This includes forming a strong relationship with the students to allow them to be their true selves in the classroom. I want all students to feel comfortable to make mistakes and have their biggest accomplishments.
Philosophy:

My philosophy is to have students engage in learning throughout active, hands-on lessons. Students learn in many different ways so it is my goal to learn about my students’ learning and find out what best fits their learning styles.

Favorite part of teaching:

My favorite part of teaching is creating strong relationships with the students and their families. This allows me to create a positive classroom community where I can share the fun things we are doing throughout the day.

Favorite thing about St. Martha:
My favorite thing about St. Martha is the AMAZING community! As a first year teacher (2021), I have never felt so much support by every single person in the school building.
My hope for my students:

My hope is that my students love coming to school everyday and learning something new. First grade is such an amazing year for students to grow and I can’t wait to see how much each and every student grows throughout the school year.

Fun fact:

I have been a part of the St. Martha community since 2003 when I started pre-school here!

Family is the Best Word

"The teachers are really vested in the kids long after they leave their classes. Family is the best word to describe St. Martha and prepared is the best word to describe my son after his time there.”
