YEARS AT CWC:
2019-present (2nd year)
Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies form Western Governors University
I started my undergraduate journey at UW-Eau Claire where I completed my first two years of college. After I got married and moved back home, I sought out an online teaching degree and that is how I finished my degree at WGU. I was fortunate enough to complete my necessary hours of preclinical experience as well as my student teaching semester here at CWC, teaching in fourth grade. So it feels like I've been part of the CWC family since 2018. My "official" first year was teaching reading, writing, spelling, and math in the mornings in fourth grade. For the 2020-21 school year, I changed roles and I'm now part of the ESS team as the K-5 Academic Interventionist. I have completed trainings in Orton-Gillingham instruction from the Institute of Multi-Sensory Education and implement this instructional approach to the reading services provided in my room.
I am married to Noah Mulder (CWC alumni '07) and together we have three children. We live in Waupun and are members of First Christian Reformed Church. There, we take up active roles in serving in the children and youth ministries.
FAVORITE BIBLE PASSAGE:
Galatians 5:1-5 "Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us."
