Mrs. Day's Top Ten Questions... Answered

10. Where are you from?  I was born and raised in Wabasha!  I enjoy teaching in the school I attended.
9.   What is your favorite part of teaching?  I love getting to know a new group of students each year!  The day goes by so quickly, I don't have time to "watch the clock" ever!
8.   Who is in your family?  I grew up the youngest and only girl with 3 older brothers.  I am married to a UPS man, Chris.  We have two children Zoey and Zac. 
7.   Where did you go to College?  I attended University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse and  Winona State University.
6.   When did you decide to be a teacher?  After high school, I was undecided on my future plans.  I ended up in Cincinnati Ohio living with a family as a nanny.  My nanny family "guided" me to look further into a teaching career.  They are still a huge part of my life, and I credit my career to them for all their encouragement!
5.   How long have you taught?  I started teaching Kindergarten at W-K in 2006 and taught for 11 years.  I started teaching preschool in 2017.
4.   When you're not in school, where will you be found?  Probably not at home!  I feel that our family is always busy.  We love boating, camping, visiting Lark Toys, taking walks, biking, and all the other usual family activities. If I am at home, you will probably find me in the kitchen decorating a cake or baking cupcakes. 
3.  What is your least favorite part of teaching?  SO MUCH TO DO!!!  I want to do it ALL, and typically just get overwhelmed because I can't!
2. What is something you've brought to your school?  I discovered a timer system that I use daily in my classroom.  When others realized how it changed and bettered my teaching they started asking about it.  Next thing I knew many other teachers started using the sound system as well.  I love passing this idea on to other teachers, it is a life saver in the classroom!
1.  What are you most excited about this school year?  I love getting to know a new group of students and finding better ways to reach each of them!
