New to the Wolf Pack!

As with any new school year, there are many new faces joining the Geisler Wolf Pack, including several new staff members since last fall. Please be sure to welcome these new individuals to GMS! We look forward to featuring many of these new Wolves in future newspaper issues.

Ms. Shaw interview conducted by: Saya Farrell

Ms. Shaw is also new to the Wolf Pack as Mr. Hudson’s student teacher. I interviewed Ms. Shaw to get to know her a little bit more and this is what she said:

  1. What made you want to become a math teacher? My 7th grade math teacher and my 12th grade math teacher were both really big inspirations. I saw how passionate they were about teaching, and this inspired me to become a teacher myself. I also enjoy building relationships with my students and watching them succeed in and out of the classroom.

  2. What was your experience in middle school? A couple of my favorite things from middle school were the 8th grade graduation celebration and the 8th grade picnic we had at the end of the school year. I remember having a lot of fun with my friends at these events. I also danced in the talent show with some of my friends in 6th and 7th grade.

  3. What do you think about being a student teacher during COVID? Doing my internship during COVID has some added challenges, but I am very excited to be in-person this year. One thing I have learned over the last year and a half is how to adapt to sudden changes. I think this is something that will help me this year and in the future as a teacher.

  4. What is the hardest part about being a math teacher? The most challenging part about teaching math is finding new ways to make learning math fun.

  5. Tell us a little bit about yourself: I am a huge Spartan fan (Go Green!). I love going to Michigan State football games when I can, and when I can’t, I am always watching on TV. I am from Canton, Michigan, so I grew up not far from here. I have a cat, her name is Pumpkin. I enjoy playing with her when I get home from school. She is only 2 years old so she is very energetic. I am excited to be a part of the Wolf Pack this year, Go Wolves!

Mr. Malik by: Aiza Valenzuela

To start us off, I’m here with Mr. Malik, our new 6th & 8th Grade English teacher. He transferred to our school after teaching at Walnut Creek for many years.

First, I asked him how he was feeling about teaching at Geisler so far and he responded by saying, “It's been great! Geisler has been great to teach at so far” and I don’t know about you but that made me feel really good because that means we are all making an effort to make our new teachers here feel welcome!

The next question I asked was what were his hopes for the new school year and he responded by building relationships with both the teachers and students.

We are very grateful to have Mr. Malik as a new part to our wolf pack and I am very excited to see where this year takes us with him!!
