Ms. Rebecca Watters-Schroeder
Welcome to the flock, everyone! I have taught Middle School Language Arts and Social Studies in the Chicago suburbs, St. Paul, and now Shakopee; I'm so excited to be your teacher! I teach ELA at East, and one of my favorite parts of my job is the variety of speaking, listening, writing, and reading we get to do each day in our classroom. I love middle school students and spending my days supporting adolescents in getting to know themselves and feel more confident in life skills such as literacy.
Flamingos are my favorite animal, which is clear the moment you walk through my door! You are a member of the flock as soon as you enter our classroom community. We read together and discuss; we write together and share; and we spend time building our classroom community through speaking, listening, and activities.
Outside of school, I enjoy hiking and spending time outdoors; eating at restaurants; reading and/or listening to mystery novels and nonfiction; and, the most important part of my life is my family--my husband, Adam, and my dog, Duncan. Welcome, again, and I can't wait to have you join as a member of the ELA Flock with Ms. Watters! :)
