Welcome to Mrs. Tuesburg's third grade classroom for the 2019-2020 school year!We will be working very hard this year to prepare for the IREAD3 and ILEARN tests! I will be using the "Whole Brain Teaching Method" and "Growth Mindsets" to actively engage students in the learning process. Mrs. Sickles and I work collaboratively to ensure that our third grade students receive the same curriculum. We encourage our students to have "positive mental attitudes" and to do their "personal best" work each day. We are a team! It's going to be an amazing year!

Two years later, I earned my Master's degree from Indiana Wesleyan University. I am married and have two daughters and two little grandsons. This is my 20th year of teaching. Teaching and running are my passions!
