Welcome to first grade! My name is Mrs. Schuttenberg. Some students like to call me Mrs. S for short, either one works for me. I am really excited to be part of Sanborn Elementary as your child’s first grade teacher!
My Education and Professional Background
My educational history includes, graduating from the University of New Mexico with a bachelor’s of art degree and then attending Ottawa University focusing on Elementary Education (K-8). I have attained Structured English Immersion K-12 and an Early Childhood Endorsement. I have experience teaching kindergarten, first grade, sixth grade and eighth grade. I have been working for Sanborn Elementary since 2006. I really enjoy teaching first grade as I see exceptional growth throughout the year.
My Educational Philosophy
My teaching philosophy is to inspire student’s learning through engaging questions that deepen their understanding of the world around them. I believe students learn best through discovery learning. I create an environment that enables them to have hands on learning experiences and discussions with their peers. I promote a classroom with high expectations balanced with a fun learning environment. I truly believe if you put your mind to it, you can achieve anything.
