Welcome from Mrs. Sherry Brevick. I've spent over 20 years with students in grades 1-8 in the Alma Area School district. (Five additional years of instruction were in Rice Lake or Eau Claire). I fulfilled my Masters Degree in Education at St. Mary's University.
I feel fortunate to call this great little river town my home and am grateful for my 20 years with the students at Alma Area School. I'm the 5 th grade homeroom instructor and the English teacher for the 4 th and 6 th graders. I'm passionate about inspiring students to interact and love literature. In addition, I continuously create curriculum so that students are excited about developing their written language skills.
I have numerous areas of interest both in and out of the classroom. Obviously, literacy development has been my focus for many years. In addition, I know that as much as students focus on content in my classroom, they are more importantly developing skills to be successful in the 21st century, so I focus on developing skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, communication and more. Technology development is also essential for the 21st century learner. Therefore, being informed about the best technology for teaching and classroom use is an ongoing interest. Developing STEM at Alma Area School is also important to me. The VEX Robotics team and the Design Lab are ways that I've recently focused on STEM development in our elementary.
Always feel welcome to connect with me about what is happening in the 5th grade!
