Mrs. JULIE SCHONDUBE
MHS TEACHER SINCE: 1999
During the kindergarten year, students will learn and grow together in our classroom community. We start our day with Morning Meeting, during which everyone is greeted and welcomed and joined together. Throughout the day, the kindergarten students are involved in literacy and math learning activities, practicing problem solving skills, becoming more independent, exploring the world around them and learning how to be a respectful community member. I especially enjoy being out in nature with kindergartners and often take the class out to explore the wooded school area, while also taking hikes out in Battell Woods. I also like to sing and move with the kindergartners! Our days are busy and full of energy and we often take movement breaks to recharge and be ready for what comes next. Kindergarten is the place to be!
A LITTLE ABOUT ME!
MY HOMETOWN: I grew up in Vergennes, Vermont.
MY EDUCATION: I graduated from Vergennes Union High School in 1991 and then went on to get my undergraduate degree from Plattsburgh State and Castleton University.
MY CAREER: My first teaching position was sharing a first grade classroom. I then taught grade two and grade three before finally deciding on Kindergarten.
OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL: My dog Izzy and I are the only two girls in a household of men. Izzy and I live with my husband and our two sons and our other dog Frisco. I don’t mind being the sole woman of the household because I love camping and horsing around at our favorite vacation destination, the Outer Banks in North Carolina. We love to fish, swim and pick blueberries in the summer. Life is good!
MY FAVORITE SUBJECTS IN SCHOOL WERE: Science and Writing.
