My Home Page - Welcome Parents!

  • Introduction

    Hello!  My name is Nicole Haskin and I'm the new ESL Teacher at Rockwell, Luther, and Barrie Elementary Schools.  I'm very excited to begin applying my new knowledge in ESL in Fort Atkinson.  Prior to this position, I had multiple experiences with teaching elementary-age students through three years of full-time teaching, five years of subbing in grades PK-12 (including three long-term sub positions), and three years of teaching summer school remedial literacy classes.  

    Educational Background

    I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from UW-Platteville in May 2005.  Three years ago, I decided to return to school to enroll in Edgewood College’s K-12 Reading Teacher, Reading Specialist, and ESL/Bilingual Programs. My goal was to strengthen my teaching and pursue future specialist positions in the areas of literacy and ELL.  In addition to my Elementary Ed. License (B-11), I currently hold or will be holding licenses in the following areas:  #316 Reading Teacher, #395 ESL Teacher, and #317 Reading Specialist.  After nearing completion of the above programs, I believe I am able to get to the heart of effective reading and language instruction; which supports a practical, creative, and research-based approach to the work of teaching reading, language (reading, speaking, listening, and writing) and promoting literacy.  

    About this website...
    There are many areas to the website that I know you will find great value in. My goal is to make the website not just a tool for me, as the teacher, to connect with parents, but also a learning tool and resource for the students.
