All About Me:
My name is Mrs. Stachow (Steak-oh). I am starting my 8th year teaching ELLs. I have been at Pleasant Prairie since 2010. I graduated from UW-Whitewater with a degree in regular education and ESL.
I live in Kenosha with my husband, our 3-year-old daughter, and our baby son. We also have a beloved cat named Mia. I love to go on walks, play with my kids, and go to the library!
What do I do at Pleasant Prairie Elementary?
My job is to support students who speak and/or understand multiple languages. I believe bilingualism (or multilingualism!) is a huge asset to these students, but sometimes they need a little support to do their very best in school...and that's where I come in.
I do both push-in (staying in the classroom and co-teaching with the classroom teacher), and pull-out (taking small groups out of the room so we can customize instruction). I work with students who are not ELLs sometimes as well.
I work with grades kindergarten-5th grade. I love that I can work with students for multiple years and get to see them grow as learners and as people.
