My name is Kelsey Linhart and I am currently a student at the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee in the Middle Childhood – Early Adolescense program. I am originally from Brookfield, Wisconsin so it has been nice living not too far from the home where I grew up. This is my fifth years as a college student so I am definitely ready to start a new chapter. This coming year is going to be filled with a lot of hard work, new challenges and fun!
Through the years I have really enjoyed being in classrooms. I love making connections with students and seeing them grow academically as well as personally. One of the most important parts of teaching is building relationships with your students. If you don’t have a connection and mutual respect it is going to be tough for them to retain any academic information. I am excited for this year and look forward to reflecting on my experiences in this blog.
