It’s Teacher Tuesday and this week we are highlighting an amazing second grade teacher, Mrs. Becky Jorgensen.  Mrs. Jorgensen is amazing with her second graders. You can tell, just by walking in the room how much she loves them.  She works endlessly to make sure she has the best lessons for her students. We are so lucky to have Mrs. Jorgensen at Brookside Elementary.  

What do you love to do on the weekend: boat, cross country ski, ride bikes, time with family, nap.

Who was your favorite teacher?  Why? My son's teacher - Mrs. Chatterly because she cared about my son.

Who or what inspires you? People who don't sit back, instead they get up and do something about it.

Share a memory of school: Caught my brand new dress on the slide and it pulled out all the gathers at my waist.

What is your favorite thing to teach every year? Reading Strategies, read alouds, music, dance, math, science, ok just about everything

What is the best thing about your job? The Kids, challenges of constructing a good lesson and reaching all the kids.
