My name is Becky Spanke, and I am one the 2nd grade teachers at EverGreen Academy. This is my 11th year teaching, 5th at EverGreen. I graduated from UW-Whitewater in 2006 with a Bachelor’s Degree in elementary education and a minor in health. My past experiences include 1st grade, 3rd grade, and blended classes of 1st/2nd grade, 2nd/3rd grade, and 3rd/4th grade. In my classroom I enjoy using many teaching styles; such as project based learning using auditory, visual, and kinesthetic (hands on) instruction. I am also interested in cooperative center groups, I feel this encourages my students to work together for a common goal.
When not in the classroom, but still at school, I enjoy co-directing the Cooking/Craft/Gardening club with Mrs. Jennifer Maier!
When I am not at school I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my husband and children. We like to garden, play outside, and go on family vacations. We enjoy watching and attending sporting events together, especially Park High School Football–my alma mater and where my husband currently coaches varsity football.
