Hello! My name is Michelle Hemann and I will be student teaching with  Mrs. Schmitz for the fall semester. I am working on completing my Bachelor of Science-Teaching degree from Winona State University. My degree will be in Elementary Education (K-6), with a minor in coaching (K-12). I am very excited to be student teaching in the Southland School District this fall and am excited to be a part of this wonderful community. 

About Me:

I was born in Osage, Iowa and raised 20 miles North in the small community of Stacyville, Iowa. I attended St. Ansgar Community Schools K-12 and graduated in the class of 2013. I have two older sisters; one is a high school math teacher in Newton, IA and one works in finance at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. My parents have been very supportive of all our educations and are proud of our accomplishments thus far.

Why do I want to be a teacher?

I have chosen a career in elementary education because of my passion for helping others and my love of children. Being able to watch children grow and succeed can be very rewarding. I plan to make a difference in the lives of my students by not only being their teacher, but also a positive role model through setting good examples and being a shoulder they can lean on when they need someone. Making a difference goes above and beyond the curriculum and incorporates the caring needs of the students. I know when I make a difference in the students’ lives they will want to learn in my classroom and I will make sure each one of them is successful.
